Commentary on Hit-and-Run on Belair Drive in San Antonio

It's always frustrating to see yet another Texas hit-and-run, yet they seem to show up in the news almost daily. I'm sure it more or less goes without saying that the driver who took off should be located and face consequences. Even if the damage done seems to have been relatively minor, Failure to Stop and Render Aid doesn't work on a sliding scale so police must remain diligent. Hopefully community members will come forward with information to help apprehend a suspect.

In the meantime everyone's stuck with questions, not least of which is "Why did they run?" There are many possible answers to that; they might simply have panicked, but in many cases something else (illegal contraband, outstanding warrants, drunk driving) contributed to their poor decision.

Only time and thorough investigation can tell what really happened, but as long as authorities stick to it and the public contacts them with any helpful information I'm confident this can be resolved.
