Another fatal hit and run....who does this!!!?
What kind of person hits someone with their car (bike/ped/or otherwise) and leaves the scene of a collision...letting a person suffer and die on the side of a road!? I know why...because the penalty for drunk driving is higher than the penalty for hit and run. I think it's time our legislature steps up and changes this. I think if you leave the scene the penalty should be the same as the injury you caused. They die...you get the death penalty. Broken leg....get out the sledge hammer. Might be harsh...but to avoid this penalty all you have to do is have a soul, be a decent human being, and stop to call for help if you hit someone! I bet there wouldn't be too many hit and runs if it worked this way!
