  • This is a sad situation, what might have been considered a horrible accident will now become much more of a crime. I do not understand how someone could have just drove off and left this young man laying in the cold with serious injuries. My heart goes out to the family, no parent should have to bury a child. Praying for your family.

  • Ditto clovermom. Let's get to the truth of this and hold those responsible, accountable.
