Commentary on Pedestrian Hit-and-run Accident on Navigation in Houston
It's just tragic seeing accidents like this, and I have no doubt members of the community are at least as infuriated as I am anytime someone leaves the scene of an accident--especially a fatal one. While there isn't much information available right now, simply keeping these details in the public eye can be crucial for reaching a conclusion. Someone is often able to connect the dots to a friend, neighbor, co-worker, partner, ex-partner, or some other association so police can identify and apprehend them. Those steps will hopefully lead to progress here so the victim's loved ones can at least get some much deserved answers.
