LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - A 23-year-old Lubbock man was booked into the Lubbock County jail Monday night for charges related to the November 26th death of Juan Antonio Carmona, 23, of Lubbock.
Thomas Fintan Holland faces charges of failure to stop and render aid. As of Monday night he had not been brought before a judge, and the bond recommended by prosecutors for him to get out of jail was $40,000.
A passer-by saw Carmona's body lying by the side of the road at 200 Parkway Drive. A few days later police located and confiscated the vehicle that they believe was involved in the case which they described as a hit and run. The vehicle, a black Mitsubishi, was located at 62nd and York with damage to the right headlight and right side of the windshield.
KCBD NewsChannel 11 was able to utilize a database of public records to see that the Mitsubishi was registered to Holland.
At the time, Carmona's mother, Jesusa Maria Carmona, said "To just hit and run, and leave him there like a dog to die that ain't right. That's a human being,"
His mother also said, "He had a life, he had two kids to take care of." Carmona left behind two children ages 6 and 4.
