LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

Lubbock Police have two suspects in custody after a police chase that began around 3 p.m. Friday, Jan. 10.

The incident began as a traffic stop near 52nd and Utica when William Foster Hill, 35, jumped out of a vehicle. Lubbock Police Officer Michael Matsik got out of his car and chased Hill briefly before he was struck by Shelly Blair, 43, who was driving the car. 

The arrest warrants says Blair hit a postal vehicle while trying to pass it.

The postman says he saw Officer Matsik's body fly over the front of his truck and had to slam on his brakes to avoid hitting him.

The couple then fled the scene and parked their car at a nearby apartment complex. 

Hill was arrested near the scene of the accident and Blair was found shortly after near 34th Street and Quaker Avenue. 

Blair is being charged with aggravated assault on a peace officer.

Hill is being charged with a parole violation warrant, assault on a public servant warrant, and evading arrest.

Officer Matsik is recovering back at home as of Monday night.
