Commentary on Gustavo Vasquez Cervantes Hit-and-run Accident in Elsa
It's just infuriating to see something like this happen. Someone lost their life, and the person likely responsible is still out there, perhaps even putting others in danger. Why did they run? Did they have warrants? Were they drunk or otherwise impaired? There could be unique consequences to consider depending on those answers, but it's going to take continued vigilance to bring that person to answer for their actions. Keeping these details in the public eye as much as possible could help see a resolution that the victim's family deserves.
