    What! You mean they didn’t stop! The driver was not removed from their vehicle and given a beat down. What’s the world coming too?

    I hope a follow up report will detail the apprehension of this cowardly POS.

    No doubt the driver was DUI and didn’t want to be discovered that way.

    Very fortunate this victim was not hurt worse.

    Turn this criminal in and let him MAN UP!
