Police Seek Info on Saturday Night Hit and Run

The San Marcos Police Department is seeking information about an auto/pedestrian crash that occurred on Saturday, Feb 9 at 10:29pm at the intersection of N. LBJ Dr. and Hutchison Street that has left one victim in the ICU.

Pedro Ybarra, a 54 year old father and his 23 year old daughter Larissa Ybarra were struck by a vehicle while crossing the Hutchison crosswalk Saturday night.

Both were transported to Seton Hays, and Pedro was admitted to the ICU with severe head injuries, possible permanent brain damage, and has been placed in a medically induced coma. The daughter has non incapacitating injuries and has been released from the hospital. 

Witnesses describe a maroon colored 2007-2010 model 4-door Chevrolet Tahoe with possible damage to the driver side bumper fleeing the scene. Witnesses were unable to record a license plate. 

The path of travel of the suspect is north on LBJ Dr, west on Hutchison St, south on Guadalupe St, and then west on Hopkins St.

SMPD is requesting any information or witnesses to the incident, specifically any businesses with video of the offender’s vehicle, body shops who completed repairs on matching vehicles for collision-related damages, or any person with information about the suspect to contact police immediately.

Anyone with information regarding the case should contact Detective Travis Davidson at 512.753.2315.
