Haltom City man faces charges for crashing into house, police say

HALTOM CITY -- A Haltom City man surrendered to police Tuesday on suspicion that he fled an accident scene after he crashed his car into a house, injuring a couple who were asleep.

Police identified the driver as Craig Eugene Robinson, 30.

Robinson faces two felony charges of failure to stop and render aid, police said.

The Haltom City man surrendered to police Tuesday at the Haltom City police station. He had been at Harris Methodist Fort Worth hospital suffering from a head injury he received in the accident, police said.

The crash happened shortly before 5:30 a.m. Monday in the 4200 block of Woodgate Drive.

A Honda Accord traveling at a high rate of speed was westbound on Fossil Ridge Drive when the driver lost control of his car, police said. The car hit two curbs and then smashed into a bedroom of a house, police said.

Ben Larmouth, 54, and his wife, Sarah Larmouth, 45, were injured when the car landed in their bedroom, police said. The couple managed to crawl through the debris, police said. Their injuries were not life threatening, police said.

Meanwhile, the driver fled the scene, police said. But police tracked down the motorist by using a Fort Worth police citation found inside of the car and following a bloody trail from the accident scene to a house on Fossil Ridge Drive.

The cause of the accident was still under investigation.
