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.
10000. For all 9,999 victims of initially unsolved hit-and-runs, and the countless number of others whose cases were solved. If they died as a result of this heinous crime, may they rest in peace. If they survived, may their recovery bring them back as close to whole as possible. I stand with them, and I stand with their families, now and forever.
