Per the law, he is not a kid. "Scared" does not justify illegal actions. Leaving the scene of a personal injury accident is wrong. Period. It breaks the law and he needs to pay for what he did.
The accident may not have been unavoidable given the circumstances, but fleeing certainly was and the courts need to deal with issue accordingly.

I am glad you are "a friend till the end." I am certain this young man needs friends not unlike the entire family of the victim does. What troubles me is you are implying if someone Jay walks should be hit by a car and if they are, this person is not to stop? I believe that is sad and weak.

Accidents happen. For the record she wasnt j-walking. I understand he was scared, and rightfully so, but he left her laying in the street, unconscious and very injured.

How do you think her husband, children and grandchildren felt when they received calls.

No-one ever deserves to go through this.
