Teen Killed in Hit-and-run Accident on South Gessner in Houston, TX

Hit-and-runs are always tragic, of course, but a family lost their child here. If that doesn't warrant every effort from the community to find the driver, I don't know what would. Not only should they take responsibility for leaving the scene, but these incidents usually involve something specific those drivers were hiding from police--drugs, warrants, drunk driving, etc. By keeping these details in the community, surely someone will come forward and help authorities bring some closure to this young victim's loved ones.
