Commentary on Austin Brazda Hit-and-run Accident in El Paso
It's frustrating when there isn't more information available to assist the public in identifying the runaway driver in these hit-and-runs. Even without the description, though, the public is one of the best tools a family has in a situation like this. Someone may notice a neighbor or co-worker with recent damage, and a local business could come forward with video that caught the incident. One way or another, I maintain hope that the driver here will be brought to justice and this man's grieving loved ones will get the conclusion they deserve.
