Pedestrian Injured by Moped in Hit-and-Run on 19th St in Lubbock, TX

Lubbock, TX — February 7, 2023, a pedestrian was struck and injured by a hit-and-run suspect on a moped on 19th Street in Lubbock.

Authorities say the incident happened shortly before 7:50 p.m. in the area of 19th and Avenue S. Preliminary investigation suggests only that the victim was on foot in the area when they were allegedly hit by a moped operated by 36-year-old Shawn Chapman. After the impact Chapman rode away from the scene without stopping, but officers located and arrested him a short time later.

The pedestrian suffered moderate injuries in the crash and was taken to a local hospital.

No further information is currently available.

It's pretty frustrating to see that someone tried to escape responsibility for hitting and injuring the victim, but at least he didn't get far. If the news got the facts straight it seems he's due for some serious consequences, but those may not answer one of the biggest remaining questions: Why'd he run in the first place? Put another way, what could possibly have made him think that was a good idea? I hope either he or clear evidence have a helpful answer since it's always best to know the whole story. Any further steps may depend on what that story is.
