WACO, TX (KXXV) - A 42-year-old Waco man has been arrested in connection with a hit and run accident Wednesday night after police arrested him while he was riding a cab following the wreck.

Douglas Brent Morgan faces a charge of failure to stop and render aid after police say he left the scene of an accident at 18th and Franklin.

The accident occurred just after 9 p.m. Wednesday night, when Morgan's gray Dodge pickup truck hit a Lincoln Town Car. Two pregnant woman were in the car, and were transported to a local hospital with what turned out to be non-life threatening injuries.

A witness followed the pickup to a hotel on Clay. When police arrived, another witness told officers they saw Morgan call a cab. Police then called the cab company, figured out where the cab was, stopped it and then arrested Morgan.
