Local News

SAN MARCOS, Texas (KXAN) — San Marcos police have narrowed down the vehicle in a hit-and-run Saturday to two possibilities, but are still seeking community assistance tracking down a suspect.

The hit-and-run on Saturday, Feb. 16, put two pedestrians in the hospital: Pedro Ybarra, 54, and his 23-year-old daughter Larissa. The two were crossing the street at the intersection of N. Lyndon B. Johnson Drive and E. Hutchison Street at about 10:30 p.m. 

According to San Marcos police, multiple businesses in the downtown area have provided surveillance footage of the incident. The route the suspect used to flee the scene was reviewed by police and they narrowed the vehicle down to two possibilities.

Investigators believe the suspect was driving either a maroon colored GMC Yukon or a maroon-colored Chevrolet Tahoe. They also believe there may be damage along the car’s driver side bumper.

Authorities say Pedro Ybarra is now conscious but remains at the hospital for a lengthy recovery process. His daughter suffered non-incapacitating injuries and has already been released from the hospital.

Police still seek information from nearby businesses that might have surveillance footage, body shops that completed repairs on similar cars, or anyone who might know something about the case. Informants are asked to contact San Marcos Detective Travis Davidson at (512) 753-2315.
