Gilbert Arredondo Hit-and-run Accident San Antonio, TX

While it's somewhat encouraging that at least one person came back to the scene, that person leaving in the first place and another driver apparently not coming back are incredibly concerning details. This late/early in the day, one has to wonder why those drivers left the scene. One common factor, for example, is drunk driving. Someone is on their way home from a bar and causes an accident, then the leave to avoid getting caught drunk driving. Not only could that lead to serious charges against the driver, but it could mean the victims and families involved also need to confront the alcohol provider for potentially over-serving a driver and contributing to the accident. Are authorities making sure these possible factors are getting attention? If nothing else, the victim's loved ones deserve some answers.
