Commentary on Arlington Hit-and-Run on I-20

It's always frustrating and disappointing to read about incidents like this. Whatever compelled the first driver to leave the scene after critically--perhaps 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. They don't seem to have many insights just yet about what to look for, but hopefully they're hard at work looking for witnesses or even traffic cam footage that will help them and the public identify the hit-and-run vehicle.

When (not if, but when) the suspect is apprehended hopefully investigators can find out what led them to abandon the scene and the person they hurt. 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 hopeful that justice can be served.
