    angry, are you angry the guy was hit, or that the driver ran off. Either way, the family would have stuff to deal with, no matter how someone dies. And in case you did not read the story, the person hit thankfully only had minor injuries.

    I thought it happened at Duvall and Tennessee? I saw the emergency vehicles there and wondere if that's what happened. Our prayers go out to the person(s) involved.
