LUBBOCK, Texas -

 

Police have made arrests in connection to a fatal motorcycle crash last Saturday.

Robert Quevedo, 55, is charged with failure to stop and render aid, and his son Jeremiah Quevedo, 19, is charged with tampering with evidence in connection to the deadly crash on Saturday, June 29.

On June 29, just before 1 a.m., Lubbock police officers responded to a motorcycle crash on 19th Street near Avenue S. The driver, 24-year-old Robert Macias Jr., was taken by EMS to the hospital where he was pronounced dead.

As the investigation continued, detectives with LPD’s Major Crash Investigation Unit were able to determine the motorcycle had rear ended a pickup truck. The driver of the pickup truck had failed to stop and render aid to Macias and fled the area before officers arrived.

Investigators continued to gather evidence and were able to identify the pickup as an older model Chevrolet. On July 2, crash investigators canvassed several neighborhoods and located the involved pickup truck at a home in the 2300 block of 28th Street.

By July 3, investigators were able to secure arrest warrants for both Robert and Jeremiah. LPD patrol officers arrested both later that day.

This crash remains under investigation by the LPD Major Crash Investigation Unit.
