    You can run but you can't hide. Not only does a moron run, only a moron returns to the scene of the crime.

    It might of been an accident, but doesn't one think about aiding the victim and getting him some medical help? That goes to show all he thinks about is himself.

    Give him the max punishment and let him ride the bus the rest of his life.

    Swift is lucky it happened in his POV.

    As I read the story, the Swift driver was the victim.

    I agree that the guy who did it needs to get the maximum punishment.

    The Swift driver was killed. What does "Swift is lucky it happened in his POV." have to do with it?

    I read it wrong, oops.
    I played off the Pack and assumed the driver was a Swifty.

    I'm guessing he was crossing at the light between the Flying J and Love's when he got hit. Not sure exactly where it was on Horizon blvd. My company's yard is just up the road from there.

    The driver was probably drunk and didn't want to get caught so he left the scene. I was hit by in drunk in Chicago, destroyed his car and he left the scene, I stopped to check the truck and when I got out, he was already gone. That's the way they are raised in their country, take no responsibility.

    I hope they hang the SOB. It looks like Hit and run is the new fad in Texas lately, its a bad problem in Dallas/ Ft. worth according to some people i know that live in the area.
