Commentary on Rolando Pretzantin Hit-and-run Accident in Houston

It's so upsetting that not one but two drivers here decided to leave the scene of a serious accident. Do they have no regard for the victim or their loved ones--not to mention the law? Usually, this is a sign those drivers had something specific like warrants or drunk driving they wanted to hide.

Finding that out could lead to unique consequences for those drivers, but that only comes after they're identified. Simply keeping these reports in the public eye as much as possible is a vital step toward achieving that. Someone could come forward after hearing something about a co-worker, neighbor, friend, or family member. Video evidence could also surface in the coming weeks. Whatever happens, there is still hope that this man's loved ones will at least see justice done for their terrible loss.
