Motorist facing up to 20 years in prison for fleeing crash that broke two truckers’ arms


A man accused of fleeing the scene of a wreck that left two truck drivers injured has been indicted for alleged failure to stop and render aid. 

The original incident occurred on July 24th in Bowie County, Texas. 

According to the Texarkana Gazette, 44-year-old Glenn Hoke Garcia was driving his Toyota along Interstate 30 near the 213 exit when he crossed the fog line and struck a man and a woman standing on the shoulder inspecting their semi truck. 

The incident left each of the truck drivers with fractured right arms. 

Police were able to collect a piece of passenger-side mirror from the scene of the incident and used dash cam footage from the couple’s truck to identify the Toyota’s license plate number. 

Once officers were able to locate Garcia, he told them that he had wrecked the Toyota in question on Summerhill Road in Texarkana sometime later. 

Garcia is now facing two counts of failure to stop and render aid – each punishable by up to 10 years in prison. He is currently being held in the Bowie County jail on $50,000 bail.
