Mugshot of Christopher Holyfield

Christopher Holyfield, a fourth year Tech student from Longview, was arrested by the Lubbock Police Department Tuesday this morning for count of failure to stop and render aid resulting in death.

The initial incident occurred on March 24 in the far west end of Lubbock at the intersection of 19th Street and Kelsey Avenue, where police responded to reports of an SUV colliding with a pedestrian. The victim, 20-year old Keyanna English-King, was declared dead at the scene.

Investigators reportedly identified the involved vehicle two days later and, after gathering sufficient evidence, issued an arrest warrant for Holyfield Monday.

Holyfield peacefully turned himself in Tuesday morning and was transported to the Lubbock County Detention Center.

LPD announced the arrest on Twitter shortly afterwards.

Holyfield was booked under Texas Transportation Code Section 550.021(a), a second-degree felony which holds a recommended bond of $30,000. The offense is punishable with up to 20 years of prison time.
