    No doubt you had better have GOOD Insurance around here, I have been hit three times in a five year consecutive span, so its not a matter of (if) but (when). Also I personally believe that proper legislation can be attained to get some of these scoundrels off our roads.

    Praying that the Lord will convict this lady’s heart and have her come forward without being caught y the police. It’s better to be honest and get in trouble than being caught and in trouble more……

    I was involved in a hit and run accident earlier this month and Pensacola and it was a big white truck I wonder if that truck was damaged before it hit this black truck

    Would be good to have a description of the two in the white truck

    Come on people! Why in the world would some do something like this? I bet the driver and/or passenger either had no insurance, a warrant on them or had something illegal in their vehicle. Except for pure stupidity! I hope these people get caught. If this had been my Father, Uncle or Grandfather they’d better hope the cops get to em first.

    Oh man, that’s gonna be some big money to fix. Nice Ram sir, I hope you are okay & they fix the truck up nice for you! The demolition crew in the white truck will be caught, I think.

    Please, if you are the people who were at fault here or know/ hear anything about the the boy or girl who left the scene, please contact the ECSO. Not to get them in trouble or anything but so the victim can at least have a chance. I’m sure he wouldn’t want”justice served” because he’s not that type of man. He would just want you to do the right thing. What if the same thing happened to your dad/grandpa? Just wouldn’t be fair would it?
