    There was a family walking across the street she was the last one walking, she didn’t intentionally step out in front of the car, he shouldn’t have the scene and been such a coward.

    All to often around here these hit and run killers get away with it. The most important thing to do if you witness a hit and run is follow and get the other car info. You can come back to the wreck….the person who followed is the real hero in this!

    People with heart are not cowards and leave a fatally injured woman on a highway. He should spend the rest of life in prison

    This is my mother in law… She was a kind wonderful woman. This man has no regard for a life. To just leave without a word goes to show what kind of person he is. He has ruined my family forever.

    My gut tells me Mr. Bodie was impaired and didn’t want to get caught.

    Yep, Charles has a huge heart all right, so caring a heart he left his victim lying in the road, not knowing if she was dead or alive. Huge heart…….right!

    Being a victim of a hit and run driver that is still out there hiding their ugly secret I abhor all of the cowards with no moral conscience – spend the rest of your days in a prison cell.

    My heart goes out to their family. It really is a shame a person cannot own up to their wrong doing.

    Condolences to the family.
    Why did this woman step out in front of a vehicle at 10:30 at night (it’s dark in that area). Did she not see the headlights?
    He shouldn’t have left.
