    OMG, what happened to the person(s) the ambulance was responding to? This is tragic in so many ways. Glad they got the license plate of the runaway.

    I'm appalled that this story hasn't been updated with a proper heading " Pedestrian Dead After A Hit And Run" is misleading and sheds negative light on the paramedics involved who acted with the utmost professionalism. I realize all the facts hadn't yet been released upon the initial posting of this incident however all of the other local news sources found time to relabel their coverage as information became available; differentiating between the paramedics (who acted appropriately) and the individual at large who fled the scene. I will turn to other local news sources in the future to avoid being misled by story heads that are inaccurate (not to mention the lack of detail within the piece itself as opposed to that of Fox 17 News' competitors).
