5.13. In the morning That mess be Dark and fog And who will Walk at this time in the route And what happen to look to the right look through the Lyft and watch out. Well that was very sad


dont think it would be difficult to id the driver.

going that rate of speed and hitting a person would cause severe damage to the front end of the vehicle. could check w/ local body shops that have taken in recent damaged cars without a police report.

in fairness to the driver, unlikely that anyone would expect a person to be walking along the highway (in the lanes maybe?) at 5am in low visibility. bad move to flee the scene though.
