It is rare that you ever have to unbuckle a fatal accident victim. That had to be a massive impact. I wonder why the driver of the other vehicle fled.

The driver of the other vehicle, Pedro, fled because if he didn't, he'd be on a one way ticket back to his home country right now.

When someone is illegal, there is NO way to trace them. If they get in an accident, one that disables their vehicle, they will physically run from the scene because there is no way to identify them otherwise. Sad really. We American citizens are being terrorized everyday in our own country, by people our government seems to be supporting.

You took the words out of my mouth. And whether you want Obama or McCain it doesn't matter- both of them want the illegals here.

My son and I were almost killed friday nite getting rear ended at speed while stopped at a traffic lite. The other fool never braked, just totalled my miata and rolled his Jeep. Now I find out he has no insurance and I have to pay $271.00 to get my totalled car back from the wrecker! How can this happen??? The police just write the report and say oh well, call your lawyer. Something stinks bad about this system.

Its a shame about Mr James death but if you look at the details, Mr James did not yield the right of way of the northbound truck and probably was not Pedro's fault. However since he is probably illegal, he should be tracked like an animal and hung up due to his immoral behaviour by leaving the scene if nothing else.

Where in the story does it say he didn't yeild???? NO WHERE! If you live in the area you would know that you would most always come to a complete stop because Pleasant Hill is a busy road!!! RIP MR. JAMES, Sherry Keep your head up

The ACLU and the NAACP have suported racial profiling so even if a police officer suspected a person didnt have a licence to drive he may not be stopped because of repercussions.

I have read the article like 10 times and did not see anything about illegal drivers so it must be your prejudism that is making you bring those remarks, what about if instead was Peter or John, I see in the news a lot of those doing exactly the same but is people like you that only see thing one sided that brings a bad taste to us american citizens, lets stick to the facts and comment on facts and not prejudice commentns or mentality.

The guy that fled was drunk and going 100 mph. Carl yielded, but never had a chance. Know the facts before you post comments his family can read, its really not fair and is quite mean. My thoughts and prayers go out to Carl's family...

History proves over and over again that illegals drive with no drivers license, no insurance, are known to be heavy drinkers and run like cowards when they hit some one. We had a run of them a couple of years ago, about 7 innocents were killed by drunk Mexicans, 2 of those killed were Police & none of the filthy W E T B A C K S had the gonads to stick around or even call for help before they ran. One of the young women probably would have live had the vermin not left her there to die on the side of the road while he ran like the low life he is. In fact he is still running, he skipped out on his bail. I do not see how they sleep at night.

I think people using cell phones while driving may be responsible for the endless accidents that happen as they "over correct" after drifting into the wrong lane or side of the the road, etc.
