Jesus Natividad Gutierrez, 43, is charged with failure to stop and render aid and filing a false police report. A judge set his bond at $105,000 total for both charges.
Just before 3 p.m. Saturday, police said 29-year-old U.S. Postal Service employee Robert Jones was on his normal route when an SUV tried to go around his postal truck and another car.
Surveillance footage obtained by ABC Houston affiliate KTRK shows Jones trying to make a left turn when the SUV clipped his mail truck, causing it to spin and flip over into a ditch. Jones was ejected and trapped underneath his truck.
Meanwhile, the suspect’s car, which police described as a 2011 white Ford Expedition, appears to slow down before driving off.
