Commentary on Chase Nelson Hit-and-Run on I-35 in Austin

It's just tragic seeing accidents like this, and I have no doubt members of the local community are as mad as I am any time someone leaves the scene of an accident--especially a fatal one. I think all would agree it's best that driver is found and faces consequences.

While there isn't much information available right now to make that happen, simply keeping any details or developments in the public eye can be crucial for reaching a resolution. If police remain diligent and civilians keep their eyes peeled, someone is often able to connect the dots to a friend, neighbor, co-worker, partner, ex-partner, or even just a passing stranger so police can identify and apprehend them.

Hopefully cooperation between law enforcement and the community will make some progress in finding the hit-and-run suspect and some much-needed answers for a grieving family.
