David Yates Killed in Hit-and-run Accident in Calallen, TX

It's just infuriating to see someone leave another person behind like this. Those moments between the accident and police finding the victim may have been the moments that would have saved this man's life. So why did the driver flee? Did they have warrants? Did they have a suspended license? Were they drunk on their way home from a bar? I think there should at least be some credit for someone that does the right thing and turns themselves in, but that doesn't change the fact there is a family in need of answers. Whatever exactly happened here, steps should be taken to bring those issues to light so those involved here can take steps toward the resolution they deserve.
