These types of accidents are always tragic, but they're even more unfortunate when the other vehicles involved leave the scene. With hope, a more thorough investigation will shore up some of the more complex elements left unclarified by preliminary media reports.
I'm curious to find out why the other vehicles fled, and further, if the driver of the truck was aware of the fact the victim was in the roadway. However, we don't have access to this information at this time. We'll have to await the outcome of a more thorough investigation before we have the answers to these important questions.
