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.

272. Salt Lake City, Utah. April 13. 4X-year-old man struck and killed by a “light-blue and silver SUV” that sped away from the scene.

273. Omaha, Neb. April 13. 29-year-old man injured after being struck by a “1993 Ford Ranger, possibly white in color.” The car had the right of way, but the driver will now face charges for fleeing. (Good move, huh?)

274. Naples, Fla. April 12. 62-year-old woman struck and killed while trying to assist hit-and-run victims; the driver in the first instance fled; the driver who struck her didn’t.

275. Amarillo, Texas. April 11. 49-year-old woman found unconscious in the street after apparently being struck by an unidentified vehicle that fled the scene.
