Commentary on Pedestrian Hit-and-run Accident on Poplar in San Antonio

It's just infuriating to see a situation like this, and folks are justified if they demand the driver be located and brought to justice. Something that caught my eye was authorities saying the pedestrian was under the influence of alcohol. But that person was doing the responsible thing and not driving. Frankly, a lot of hit-and-run drivers flee because they themselves were drunk and didn't want police to know. That's especially common early in the morning. Could it be that's what happened here? It may take continued efforts from the community to connect the dots and come forward with information that can identify the driver involved here.
