Hit-and-Run America, Vol. DCCLXV


Those of you who pay close attention to this ongoing list of unsolved hit-and-runs across America have likely noticed the lack of  updates since early November.

I apologize for the dearth of posts, but a couple things have been going on.

One: I long planned to stop keeping as close a track on the daily updates once the list topped 10,000 entries, as it did in the middle of July.

Two: Life got really busy on me and the time to regularly update became scarce in recent months.

Well, I guess that’s it. In any event, after the new year, I plan on picking up where I left off in November. Sure, there will be a lapse in the list itself where hundreds of more deaths and life-altering injuries occurred. And sure, I’m still deciding whether to keep the list as is, or highlight the more egregious cases that come over the transom on a daily basis.

More on that when we get to that point. In the meantime, this post will serve as a clearinghouse of hit-and-run related stories that I wrote during 2017.
