BOERNE, Texas -- DPS Troopers have arrested a man in connection with a deadly hit and run accident that killed a cyclist Thursday evening. 64-year-old Joseph Thomas Gabay is charged with failure to stop and render aid involving death, for the death of 68-year-old Dr. Larry Becker.
Trooper Jason Reyes says Gabay confessed Monday afternoon and said he "didn't know what he hit." Reyes says a paint transfer from Becker's bike was on Gabay's red Dodge Ram truck. The truck also had damage to the right side and windshield. Dr. Becker was riding on the IH 10 access road at about 7 p.m. Thursday evening when he was hit. Reyes said Gabay contacted investigators and wanted to talk about the accident.
Becker's widow Dorothy Becker said she knew something was wrong when he didn't return home from his ride. No one witnessed the accident and Dorothy Becker tearfully begged for information Friday afternoon.
Kendall County Crime Stoppers was offering up to $25,000 for information leading to an arrest or conviction. Gabay's bond was recommended to be set at $50,000.
