Commentary on Margarita Terrazas Hit-and-Run in Fort Worth

It's shameful that someone would leave a person they hit behind like this. For all anyone knows the moments between the driver leaving and someone calling for help could have been crucial in saving the victim's life. It's vital that the suspect be located and apprehended, both to ensure they're charged and to see if they can provide any insights about their choice to abandon a dying person in the road.

So why did they flee? Did they just panic, or was this a clear-headed effort to avoid responsibility? Did they have something to hide? Drugs, warrants, drunk driving--these are all common reasons people flee crash scenes, and they can have particular consequences if brought to light.
