Houston police say Nathan Robinson, 21, has been charged with failure to stop and render aid with serious bodily injury after he slammed into Deputy Jeremy Thomas and Sgt. Chris Garza's motorcycles on Friday.
The off-duty deputies were leaving a funeral for Thomas' father-in-law when the crash happened on Old Humble Road near Homestead.
Sheriff Ed Gonzalez said one deputy was taken to Ben Taub Hospital on Friday afternoon in critical condition, but was able to speak. The deputy is now stable.
The other deputy's injuries were not critical.
Deputy Thomas is recuperating well and was being released from the hospital Saturday.
WATCH: Update on deputies involved in major crash
The sheriff's office said the deputies were driving northbound on Old Humble Road and were struck by a driver in a black sedan, who was traveling southbound.
Deputies said the driver and his passenger took off on foot after the crash.
Saturday morning in court, investigators said they were able to track down Robinson, because he left a DPS citation with his address on it in the vehicle. He was cited Sept. 30, 2018 for an improperly-placed license plate.
When officers went to the address, he admitted to being the driver of the Impala when the crash happened. His bond is set at a total of $20,000.
We do not know the whereabouts of the second suspect.
