HOUSTON (AP) - Authorities say a driver accused of fleeing the scene of a crash that injured two off-duty Houston-area deputies who were on motorcycles has been arrested.

Nathan Macklin Robinson Jr. has been charged with two counts of failure to stop and render aid with serious bodily injury.

Authorities say the off-duty Harris County Sheriff's Office deputies were leaving a funeral for the father-in-law of one of the deputies when Robinson crashed into them Friday afternoon.

Robinson and an unidentified passenger fled the scene on foot. Robinson was captured Friday evening.

The injured deputies were identified as Jeremy Thomas and Sgt. Chris Garza.

Both deputies were hospitalized and listed in stable condition.

Court records didn't list an attorney for the 22-year-old Robinson.

Authorities were still looking for the passenger in Robinson's car.
