Commentary on San Antonio Hit-and-Run on Southcross Ranch

It's always frustrating and disappointing to read about hit-and-runs in the news. There's no excuse for a driver hitting someone and leaving them in the road. It's important to track that vehicle down and find out what the driver could possibly have to say for themselves--as well as ensuring they face appropriate consequences for their choice.

For that to happen police must share any new details or developments with the community so they can keep an eye out for the vehicle and its operator. Ensuring all the available information is in the public eye often leads to someone connecting the dots and calling a tip line. Once a suspect is in custody investigators can learn what made them abandon someone in the street--panic, stolen vehicle, active warrants, drunk driving, or something else entirely. We'll only know once they're caught, but if everyone does their part I'm hopeful justice can be properly served.
