Commentary on Pedestrian Accident on Ferguson Road in Dallas

I just want to be clear that I have no particular reason to doubt anything in these reports. The story of the driver thinking someone threw something is not entirely unrealistic. At the same time, it's important to retrace that driver's steps and verify what may have happened.

Dark or not, it seems unlikely a driver wouldn't realize they hit a human being. I've seen drivers come forward hours or days after the crash only for things like witness statements or receipts to show they likely would have been intoxicated at the time, and they left to sober up. I'm hoping nothing so deplorable happened here, but if investigations weren't thorough enough here, the victim's loved ones may not be getting the whole story.
