  • Well the person could have been a victim but they changed all the when they decided to run away and leave the man dying on the street, not a wise choice. And if they had any balls, man or woman they would turn themselves in and sort this out. Make the right choice man

  • If these photos are indeed the man that was later killed on this same road it’s obvious, per these photos, that he was walking in what is designated as the “bike lane.” I hope they find the driver that struck and killed him. I don’t think it should be that difficult as they have a pretty good description of the vehicle from the photos. This victim, and his family, are in my prayers.
