Hit-and-runs are far too common on Texas roads, which is why it's so important to report on these incidents as often as possible. Keeping them in the public eye is often a vital step toward someone connecting the dots and coming forward with information police can use. That way, they can find out why the driver fled, what consequences that warrants, and what possible help is available to the victims and families.
