Hit-and-Run America, Vol. CMXXXI

An ongoing collection of unsolved hit-and-run cases, with a focus on car/pedestrian incidents, from across the country since Jan. ‘010. If you know something about any of these incidents, or one that I’ve missed, do the right thing and call the police, even anonymously. After a respite from keeping the list, it restarted in January 2019, highlighting one case a day. If there’s a case you’ve seen that deserves highlighting, drop me a line at hickey@brianphickey.com.

You know, we lost somebody very close and special to us.” Data shows hit-and-run crashes with injuries spiking. West Hartford Mayor Shari Cantor said this has been an issue everywhere. “Not just West Hartford and not just even the state of Connecticut. This is a national trend,” she said.

13185. When police arrived, fire and AMR first responders were already on scene of the crash and declared 55-year-old Angela Ramirez dead. The driver of the vehicle on scene was traveling westbound on Amarillo Boulevard in the left lane.
