Commentary on Bicyclist Hit-and-run Accident on Martin Luther King in Wichita Falls
It's just infuriating when someone leaves a person behind to die like this. The moments spent running from the scene instead of calling for help may have been the moments that saved this person's life. One must consider, then, why that person felt the need to run. Do they have warrants? Were they drunk after a night out at the bars? Did they have drugs? If the community remains vigilant, there is still hope authorities are able to find the person responsible for this awful event. Continued efforts may yet bring new information to light so the family affected here can get the justice they deserve.
