Hit-and-Run America, Vol. DCCCLXVIII

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.

12200. “Come and talk to us,” said Ryan Moreno, detective with the LAPD. “We can get your side of the story, what happened. I know they probably didn’t intend for this to happen, they were driving and it was probably just a really bad accident, but it’s the choices that were made after the accident that make this a crime and what it is.”

12201. “Steve was a really, really good person… He was very hard working. He was funny. He always liked to laugh,” Robertson recounted. Robertson hopes her brother’s death will be a wakeup call for others as the decision to drink and drive ended one life and changed many others forever.
