Commentary on Alyssa Rae Clinger Car Accident in El Paso
It's just infuriating to see someone lose their life in an accident only for the driver involved to completely shirk their responsibility to stay at the scene. Whatever led to the incident, that person needs to be brought to justice. That often happens as a result of the community seeing these details as much as possible. Someone is often able to connect the dots and identify a friend, neighbor, co-worker, or even a family member so they can be held accountable for their actions. I maintain hope that can still happen here.
