Commentary on Pedro Sepulveda Hit-and-Run in San Antonio

It's always frustrating and disappointing to read about incidents like this in the news. Whatever compelled the driver to leave the scene after fatally injuring someone, it's important to track them down and see what they have to say for themselves.

For that to happen police must stay diligent and community members should come forward with any information they can provide about the suspect. It's also encouraging that authorities seem to know the make, model, and color of vehicle they're looking for. That's a lot more than police often have after these incidents, but they'll still need more to get the job done.

That's why it's important to share any new details or developments with the community so they can keep an eye out for the vehicle and its operator. Ensuring all the available information is in the public eye often leads to someone connecting the dots and reaching out to a tip line.

Once the suspect is in custody hopefully investigators will find out what compelled them to abandon the scene and the person they fatally injured. 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, but if everyone does their part I'm confident justice can be served.
