It's unfortunate how often this sort of thing happens. Finding these drivers is of course imperative, considering they're usually running to hide something serious, such as warrants or drunk driving. The best chance of that happening is keeping the details in the public eye until someone can connect the dots and identify the driver. I remain hopeful that will happen here.
