    If convicted ( and you will be ) remember you are an irresponsible person and you deserve everything that the judge can throw at you !!! You have no shame because people like you are bottom feeders !!! Killed an innocent person all because of your inability to operate a vehicle!!! I also hope they take your drivers license permanently!!! My sister was killed on 9/28/90 by someone just like you !!! I hope you rot in jail !!!!

    Good for that bystander rising to the occasion. What a tragedy that someone was killed and abandoned by the wrong doer.
