Hit and run incidents like this are always infuriating, and so many seem to come out of the Houston area. I have no doubt locals are fed up with these drivers, which is why it's so crucial for them to keep their eyes peeled for any information that can assist authorities. Keeping these details in the public eye often leads to someone finding security footage or otherwise connecting dots that identify the driver. I remain hopeful that may yet happen here.
