Commentary on John Carpenter Hit-and-run Accident in Harris County

It's just shameful that a man simply trying to help someone in need paid the ultimate price, and the person involved couldn't even stay to speak with authorities. Why is that? Were they on drugs? Did they have warrants? Were they coming from a local bar that illegally over-served them? That could lead to a driver and a local business on the hook for this man's death. Whatever happened here, efforts must continue until something comes to light which can connect the dots and get this man's loved ones the answers they deserve. Folks in the community should have every reason to bring yet another runaway driver in Harris County to justice.
