Local woman and her dog were struck in a hit-and-run. The woman was grievously injured and faces a long recovery. The dog died. :( They are raising money for medical bills. I suppose if/when the driver is caught, his insurance may help. If he has any.
I hope the man is caught. He probably panicked and doesn’t know how to proceed, but that doesn’t fix the problem.
Neighbor advised her to call 911 and report her self so that it would not be hit and run. There is no damage to the plastic bumper cover of our van, and unlikely any to the trailer hitch or steel bumper of the truck. Eventually, someone called our daughter back from state patrol probably, and said the other driver did not call it in, so she could go.
All this is to say that I do see how someone could panic. I do.
I hope the driver who struck that woman and her dog is caught soon.
Those who label words as violence do so with the sole purpose of justifying violence against words.
