Commentary on Johnny Ray Cole Hit-and-run Accident in Sherman

Johnny Ray Cole Killed in Hit-and-run Accident in Sherman, TX

It's just infuriating when drivers do this. The moments between the driver hitting the victim and someone finally calling for help could have been the moments that saved a life. Instead, that person has serious consequences they need to be accountable for. Why did they run? Warrants? Drugs? No license? Drunk driving? Finding out means finding the driver, and the best chance of that happening comes with locals remaining vigilant until someone can finally connect the dots. I maintain hope someone will do the right thing and help authorities get this man's loved ones the closure they deserve.
