It's such a shame that someone left the scene of such a serious accident. Folks think all lawyers are just anti-trucker, but I've worked with countless professional drivers that suffer because of other reckless drivers. Hopefully something like video evidence is available to help identify the runaway vehicle, but even keeping these details in the public eye can be of significant help. Someone in the community may be able to connect the dots and come forward to identify a friend, neighbor, co-worker, or even family member. Once that happens, steps can be taken to get this driver the help they deserve.
