A man is facing felony charges after he admitted to Lubbock Police that he hit a pedestrian with his truck.
The accident happened on West 19th early Monday morning. Police say a man has stepped forward claiming responsibility for hitting a man and not stopping to help. Police would not say who this man is or what he told police.
Around 5:15am Monday morning, 29-year-old Eduardo Rodriguez was walking on West 19th when he was struck from behind by a pick-up truck. The driver did not stop and Rodriguez later died.
Police will turn this case over to the Lubbock District Attorneys Office possibly later this week. They say this suspect will face felony charges of failing to stop and render aid. The man has not been arrested yet.
