It's just infuriating anytime something like this happens. Those moments between the driver hitting the victim and when they could have called for help may have been the moments that saved the victim's life. Instead, they chose to run. Why?

Well, it could be any number of things from warrants to drugs to simple panic. It can also be something complex like being drunk on their way home from a bar, which could mean that driver and the bar are liable if the driver was over-served. One way or another, thorough investigations need to happen, and that must include identifying the driver in question. Surely, keeping these details in the public eye will lead to a family member, friend, co-worker, or some other vigilant member of the community to come forward and help get justice for this woman's loved ones.
