A while back, for example, a couple saw our reports on a hit-and-run, and it turned out they recorded the truck driver's info. In fact, they only stopped following the truck because the driver saw them and literally tried to run them off the road.

While those folks went to the police, their details got lost in the shuffle somehow, and authorities never followed up. Thanks to them coming forward, an identity for the runaway driver finally came to light. It's possible that similar efforts could yield similar results here.
