It amazes me how someone could commit a crime like this and just live with it. Just a matter of time until he’s identified.

@mauricio_t: Yea its pretty brutal but it doesn’t surprise me. Most people under age of 40 nowadays have been protected by their parents since day one, so i can see it. Unfortunately either this dude has lied or denied to his parents about nature of damage to vehicle and they have bought it yet once again or he’s flat out in hiding. Yea running someone over is scary damn straight but you own it. Its now gone from accident level to criminal level and yea the cops aint dumb, they will solve this. Thats what they do. Sympathy goes out to the family of the woman just trying to get to work. . A real tragedy.
