Jonathan Ornelas Killed in Hit-and-run Accident in Reeves County, TX

With a hit-and-run accident, there are many reasons someone might leave the scene of an accident. While it could simply be panic, it's usually something specific they're trying to hide. It could be simple like a warrant or more complex someone on their way home from a bar which may also be liable under dram shop law for over-serving them. One way or the other, finding the driver is absolutely a priority. That tends to happen when these details stay in the public eye so folks can connect the dots and come forward to authorities with important information. Hopefully continued efforts here shed light on who and what caused this awful event.
