Of course, the first thing you think is, it was right after the football game ended, and maybe this person had a few pops and should not have been driving anyway. But who knows that for sure? The only thing we know with certainty is that someone hit this poor lady and then did not stop, or turn themselves in since.
And I wonder, how do you live with that on your mind? On one level, do you stay at home behind drawn curtains, flinching every time a car drives up your street? Do you recoil in fear when you see a police car or a plain Ford sedan? Does your heart flip when the phone rings? Have you awakened every morning since Monday saying, today could be the day? You know the cops will be coming for you. It's not if, but when.
Or could it be that a person who would drive off from such a thing has no conscience to bother him or her?

Two dead in Baltimore County traffic accidents. Both preventable, both memorable, both sad.
