    Lots of hit and runs…
    Know why?
    Because of fault…someone ALWAYS needs to at fault.
    There is no such thing as an "accident" anymore…

    Doesn't matter if a jogger was running down the middle of the road dressed in black at midnight…the car driver will charged with some form of wreck your life forever-

    Sincerest sympathies go out to the family and friends of the young woman who was killed. What a horrible, sad tragedy. No matter how or why this happened, comments such as those of "Uncle Tom" above are of no help what so ever. I hope Fox 17 deletes it before family sees it!
