Alfredo Fernandez was booked into the McLennan County Jail Monday on a charge of failure to stop and render aid in connection with the incident. The crash was reported to police at 3:25 a.m. on May 15 from the occupant of a home in the 3100 block of Cole Avenue.
An arrest affidavit stated that a 201 Nissan had been traveling in the 3100 block of Cole Avenue when the driver failed to negotiate a curve and left the roadway. The car crashed into the house at 3112 Cole Avenue and went through the outside wall and into a room where a man was sleeping. The impact knocked the victim into the opposite wall causing a laceration to his head and an injury to his knee.
The driver of the car and a passenger got out of the vehicle. The affidavit stated that they did so without checking to see whether anyone was hurt or to provide any needed assistance.
The affidavit state that Fernandez was identified as a suspect as the driver by the passenger and by personal items left at the scene.
Bond had not been set on new charges as of Tuesday morning, but was set at $20,000 for two previous charges related to evading arrest in another case.
