It's always infuriating when something like this happens, which is why it's always so crucial the community does what it can to help police locate the driver. This late at night, especially along this road, it wouldn't at all be surprising if this driver was coming from a local bar and ran due to drunk driving. With help from local businesses and individuals that can connect the dots, I maintain hope justice will soon be done here.
