My family extends our heartfelt sympathy to Mr. Shank's family, may he rest in peace. We know the area well, as our dear friends live nearby Mr. Shank's home. We're so very sorry for your unexpected loss.

What is with this recent rash of running people down and leaving to die alone in the road? Has civilized behavior gone the the toilet that bad?

Guess I answered my own question.

My heart goes out to these families.

What a sad, sad story. My thoughts and prayers are with the family. I sure hope the driver turns him/herself in or is caught.

Alien as in illegal? Teenager? Drunk? Someone with no insurance? Who would do something like this and then keep right on going? Obviously the vehicle substained some heavy damage. The car will be found but if it was a illegal, the driver may not?

My heart goes out to the family and unlike some of the anger, this isn't the U.S. Postal service's fault for not putting one mailbox on the wrong side of the highway.
