New Vehicle Information Available on Hit and Run

The San Marcos Police Department is still 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.

Multiple videos provided by businesses in the downtown area and along the route the suspect used to flee were reviewed and compared. Investigators have narrowed the suspect vehicle to two possibilities:

  • Maroon colored 2015-2019 GMC Yukon
  • Maroon colored 2015-2018 Chevrolet Tahoe

There may be damage to the vehicle’s driver side bumper.

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 and possible permanent brain damage had been placed in a medically induced coma.

Pedro is now conscious but remains in the hospital and has begun a lengthy recovery process. The daughter has non-incapacitating injuries and has been released from the hospital.

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 or an estimate for 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.
