Commentary on Matthew Lawrence Peck Bicycle Accident in Harris County
It's just shameful to see someone leave the scene of an accident. There is a small possibility the driver wasn't sure what they hit, but most of the time, the driver is trying to hide something from police. Whether that's warrants, drugs, or drunk driving, the goal should be to identify that person so authorities can bring them to answer for their actions.
