Documents: Abilene hit-and-run suspect contacted police, confessed

ABILENE, Texas (KTAB/KRBC) - An Abilene woman charged in connection to a fatal hit-and-run last week contacted police hours after the incident occurred and confessed to the crime, court documents reveal. 

Teresa Dominy, 64, told investigators she was driving along the access road of I-20 when she hit something early Friday morning. The documents state Dominy "recalled thinking that she should go back and that she should call someone". She also noticed the passenger side of her windshield was smashed. 

Dominy continued driving without contacting anyone or stopping to see what she hit, according to the documents, which state her vehicle was found abandoned outside city limits the morning after Robbin Caldwell, 55, was struck and killed.

The documents state Caldwell's body was found partially in the roadway and partially on the curb along the 600 block of E. Stamford Street just after midnight. She was deceased when first responders arrived at the scene. 

Dominy was booked into the Taylor County Jail Wednesday morning and charged with Accident Involving Death - a 2nd Degree Felony. She was released after posting a $15,000 bond.

Investigators don't believe that alcohol was a factor in the fatal crash, but the cause has not been determined.
