The Circumstances of the Offense (according to the press release):

On November 21, 2018, at approximately 6:05 p.m., Jacob Martinez was riding his bicycle northbound on North Van Buren Street in San Angelo when he was struck from behind by a truck driven by Clayton Dunn. The impact left Martinez seriously injured on the roadway. The driver, Clayton Dunn, continued to drive away from the scene without stopping to render aid or determine if anyone had been injured as a result of the collision.

Several items of evidence were located at the scene of the crime on Van Buren. The suspect truck was located the next day along with its owner, Clayton Dunn at a location on Howard St. Investigators used evidence obtained at the Van Buren crash scene along with evidence obtained from Mr. Dunn’s truck to assist in the investigation that lead to Clayton Dunn’s arrest for this charge.
