AUSTIN (KXAN) — San Marcos police seek information in the Saturday hit-and-run collision that put two pedestrians in the hospital, police wrote in a press release Monday. 

Pedro Ybarra, 54, and his 23-year-old daughter Larissa were crossing the street at the intersection of N. Lyndon B. Johnson Drive and E. Hutchison Street at about 10:30 p.m. Saturday. 

The two were struck by a vehicle and both were taken to the hospital. Pedro Ybarra was checked into the intensive care unit at Seton Medical Center Hays with severe head injuries and possible brain damage. His daughter suffered non-incapacitating injuries and was discharged. 

Witnesses told police they saw a maroon, four-door Chevy Tahoe with possible damage to the driver’s side and bumper flee the scene. Police believe the make of the SUV is between 2007 and 2010 and witnesses were not able to get a license plate for the SUV. 

Police 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.
