    Turn yourself in, coward.
    You won’t get away.
    Hit and run is bad, especially s pedestrian in the crosswalk.
    And since the poor guy died…..
    You should have stopped and tried to help.
    Now it’s gonna be much worse.
    Turn yourself in and own up.

    A reminder of the plight of pedestrians, which should be made into a song or poem. Really, pedestrians have to do more than tell vehicles to get the hell out of their way.
