Just to be clear here, I'm not here to lecture or criticize anyone in particular. The accused here will have their opportunity to answer for their actions. The question is whether or not there's more to the story.

Christopher Perez Alleged Hit-and-run Accident Harris County, TX

Folks who leave an accident scene usually had something specific they didn't want police to find out about. That's not always true, and I'm not saying that happened here. But it's important to look into these potential factors as they can have significant and unique legal consequences.

For example, drunk driving is common in hit-and-runs. If a drunk driver was on their way home from a bar, then that bar could also be responsible for contributing to the victim's injuries if they over-served the driver. Did authorities look into this possibility? If not, then it's possible the victims here aren't getting the full story.
