    iT IS THE MOST SOUL-LESS HUMAN BEHAVIOR ONE COULD POSSESS! TO MOW DOWN ANOTHER HUMAN BEING WALKING ON A CANE, IN A CROSSWALK AND NEVER STOP, NOR LOOK BACK IS JUST EVIL AND DEMONIC!
    THE DRIVER THAT COMMITTED THIS HORRENDOUS MURDER NEEDS AND MUST BE BROUGHT TO JUSTICE!
    SOMEONE KNOWS OR HAS A GOOD IDEA WHO THIS PERSON IS; AND NEEDS TO COME FORTH AND TAKE A STAND FOR HUMANITY! OR, THEY ARE JUST AS HEARTLESS AS THE MURDERER!
