There was a time not so long ago that if a person made a mistake and caused an accident they would stop and try to help anyone that might need it or at least wait for police to arrive. Now, it seems the most important thing is GET AWAY AS FAST AS YOU CAN AND MAYBE YOU WON'T GET CAUGHT.

Big Spring Texas at 4:30am Saturday morning, the driver was intoxicated and the pedestrians were both dressed in black not wanting to be seen.
