    This is poorly written. Who tried to flee the scene? The guy who died or the person he hit?

    Bill S’s comment is ignorant . This is the only report that mentions anything about fleeing the scene. Bill, check your facts before passing judgement. Do you believe everything you read in tke media? No one deserves to die. This person has friends and family who love him. Bill, you’re sick.

  • Bill

    The Bill S. that made that comment is not his cousin “Bill S.”

    • MT

      I’m sorry for your loss. Pat was a great guy and will be truly missed.

  • Eddy Cheech Estrada

    Bill S. im sure your an angel that has never done anything wrong. Pat was a friend of mine since his hs. I could of met a more honest and straight up human being. SO whatever the facts are there not in the article so before you pass judgement i suggest you wait to hear the fact s and remember that Pat has a family that is mourning his death so have some respect if you dont any class and keep your comments to yourself

    Really Bill S??????? I hope u never have to deal with anyone in your life making a mistake..especially one that takes their life. Have some compassion for human life. Pat was a great guy…knew him since High School. May God bless his family and his soul.

    Wow David…so you’re one of those people who believes everything they read on the internet huh? Or your one of those people who never does anything wrong and like to call others out on things. Either way, have some repect…his family may be reading this.
