  • Hit and runs are particularly awful.


  • Another hit and run? Incredible. Some weeks ago, here in WA, one woman was killed by a car while riding her bicycle. And the driver of the car who hit her, ran away. They later found him: a 73 years old man.
    Poor child!!

  • How devastating for this family, may the baby fly with the angels. Let’s hope the person involved comes forward.
