Commentary on Pedestrian Hit-and-Run in San Antonio

It's beyond frustrating to see that someone fled instead of helping in the crucial period right after a collision. Almost daily there are new reports of people taking off instead of taking responsibility for the damage they did. I can't help but wonder what possible justification someone could have for leaving another person behind like that. Did they just panic, or did they have something to hide? Warrants? Suspended or expired license? Drugs? Were they drunk? I'm not accusing the driver of any of those specifically, just wondering aloud what justification they felt they had for abandoning the wounded victim.

Finding out a suspect's motivation for fleeing is important not only so an accident can be fully understood, but also because the answers can help victims and families navigate what may come next. Finding the runaway driver and ensuring they face consequences is a paramount concern, but in addition it's important to get the people affected by this accident the help they need. That's why the community must remain vigilant until someone connects the dots and identifies the runaway driver. If police and the public work together, I'm confident justice can be done.
