Santos Caxaj Killed in Hit-and-run Accident in Harris County, TX

It's just shameful how often I come across headlines like this. Folks in the greater Houston area are no doubt sick of people fleeing their responsibilities, as well. That's why it's a good thing that help from the community is one of the best tools we have for solving hit-and-runs. By keeping reports in the public eye, someone is bound to come forward and help identify the driver. That way, steps can be taken to find out why they ran and what can be done for the victims and families. I remain hopeful continued efforts will lead to a resolution for this tragic event.
