    I certainly hope they find the sick person who would just take off after hitting someone, let alone, someone in a wheelchair who is practically defenseless.
    They are saying this afternoon on the radio the young lady who was hit has died.
    I know accidents happen, but to not stick around is terrible.
    I hope the person who did this relives it everytime they close their eyes at night.
