I can't imagine leaving a scene of an accident. What is wrong with people today? Especially such a severe one. I pray they find this person soon. What is he hiding, why did he run? HELLO?? No upstanding citizen would do such a horrible thing.

Unexcusable -

You answered your own question. The person who committed this crime was not an upstanding citizen.

Unfortunately, there are lots of bad people out there who couldn't care less who they hurt.
