Commentary on Pedestrian Hit-and-run Accident on 4th Street in Lubbock
Hit-and-runs are infuriating, to say the least, and they unfortunately happen quite often all across the state. Usually, it's someone with something specific to hide, such as warrants, drugs, or drunk driving. Those can result in more complex legal situations, which is why it's important to be as thorough as possible once authorities have identified the driver in question. In the meantime, it would be helpful for folks in the community to be as vigilant as possible until someone is able to connect the dots and identify the suspect. I maintain hope that persistence and time will help get the victim the opportunity for help they deserve.
