    Accident? No way! When a person has an accident, they stop and act responsibly toward the victim(s). This is a crime. An assault with a deadly weapon. Turn yourself in- Witch!!

    Great video! Be on the lookout for a black woman driving a blurry car that vanishes.

    Sure, they did have the right of way…

    But if you’re just going to walk into the roadway and assume that everyone will stop as they should, forgetting all about any vigilance on your part, not even bothering to look up the roadway for oncoming traffic…

    …this sort of thing is going to happen.

    And if they don’t stop, you got nobody to sue.

    So, even if you are in the right, don’t play chicken with a speeding car, OK?

    Dan, exactly what I was thinking when I watched that video. I’m not trying to put the blame on the mother and son that were hit, but it seems like they didn’t wait until it was clear to walk.

    Wow….I am amazed by the lack of concern for human life. Regardless of who had the right or way or not, two people were hit and left. Common sense should tell you that you need to stop and take responsibility for what happened. Accidents happen and it was just that an accident but once she decided to leave it became a crime. The lack of moral fiber of some people just amazes me. I pray the victims recover and strength for their family as well. I pray for all you simple minded people who don’t understand the severity of this incident that you or your loved ones never have to endure what this family is going through. I pray the woman who did this turns herself in. She will be caught. Vengeance is mine said the Lord.
