A Lubbock pedestrian is lucky that he is recovering after a hit and run accident.
It happened around 10 o'clock Thursday night at the intersection of 16th and Avenue Q. Police say 56-year-old Carolis Lee Green was crossing the street, when he was hit by the car. The driver then fled the scene.
Green is currently listed in serious condition at University Medical Center. 19-year-old James Rodriguez was arrested later. He now faces charges of failure to stop and render aid.
