Noone knows exactly what happened. Only the people that were involved. So before you go speaking negative things about her speak what you know!!!!

I didn't not know this lady but I knew this man! I can see where some will defend her but partially can't say I agree at all -scared an ran !?!?? everyone knows if your involved in an accident you stay at the scene til help arrives. perhaps had she stayed an called for help he would still be with us. He was a great brother to us in his unit; an a loved family member as well. he fought hard for his country to come home to us only to be taken so quickly and tradegically. No bail should be given

well TWISTER just as he was someones son or husband, she is also someones daughter and a dedicated mother of 3 children who made a mistake got scared and ran now I'm sure at some point in your life whether you admit it or not you've done something and hid it so be careful cause that could have been your sister or maybe your daughter would you still feel the same if they made a mistake got scared and ran don't think so

How sad.... A family loses a son... a husband... a patriot who served his country... to someone who was probably high on crack or drugs or alcohol of some kind... snuffs him out just like that... runs and hides... throw the key away please.... she should forever lose her license and if caught driving again to serve a mandatory 20 yr sentence with no early release. I drive a bike and have been hit.... be sure to sterilize them when in prison by the way... no breeding to keep the dirt off the road

...like every city with increased ghetto thugs....more crime...
