Commentary on Jeffery Wayne Hurst Hit-and-run Accident in Saginaw
It's just infuriating anytime someone leaves the scene of an accident. To leave someone behind like that when they're in dire need of help is simply unthinkable. It shouldn't be a surprise that this sort of thing often involves a driver with something specific to hide, like drunk driving, drugs, or warrants. Finding out for certain, though, means identifying the driver. I always encourage people to remain vigilant in these times. Someone is often able to connect the dots and come forward withe information police can use. The same may yet happen here, as well.
