    This saddens me so.If you make a mistake & hit someone,…More than likely it was them in the road.Call a friend & get them to call for medical help They can be saved if someone gets there in time.If you let this stand as is ,You will be filled with pain the rest of your life…Step-up & God will show you mercy…..

    When we have no one enforcing the traffic laws you get what we are getting….You could pull deputies off the ECSD staff and put them on the road IF they were CLEO.

    Coward hit and run drivers – no moral conscience – prison for life when caught – if caught.
