If it's true there was another vehicle involved here, efforts should obviously be made to find that driver. When drivers leave the scene, it's often a sign they were doing something wrong or wanted to hide something specific, such as drunk driving, drugs, or warrants. By keeping these details in the public eye, the public can potentially connect the dots to a co-worker, neighbor, acquaintance, or even a family member. Hopefully those continued efforts yield clearer answers about what happened in this tragedy.
