Sort of reminds me of an incident that occurred down on Park Street in Hartford. Sympathy extended to the young lady's family.

Relating this to the hit and run in Hartford is a bit off the wall. Apparently, you did not comprehend the article that states the coroner found the death was caused by blunt trauma to the head. This does not necessarily imply that this woman was hit by a vehicle; therefore, your comment is moot at this point.

Per the article, "Authorities said a person driving on Shetucket Turnpike just before 7 p.m. Wednesday spotted a severely injured woman lying in the middle of the road. The woman appeared to be the victim of an accident." Oh, yeah...I comprehend.

Although this reporting is incomplete, if the authorities thought it might be a hit-and-run there would be implications as such. When people get hit by cars frequently their shoes or other items get knocked off, or their clothes are torn in characteristic ways. She could have just as easily suffered the head injuries being pushed out of or jumping from a moving car. Skull fracturing exhibits differently depending on the object or incident that inflicts the injury. So yes, based on a six-sentence article you _are_ jumping to conclusions.

Ooooh the art of rationale...bottom line is she was hurt and left in the middle of the street - same as the guy on Park Street; the question is by whom and how could they be so indifferent, insensitive, uncaring about another human life? Some of the same questions raised surrounding the incident on Park Street down in Hartford. The backdrop might be different (tree-lined streets, neat little homes and manicured lawns in oppose to congested traffice, store-fronts and such), but the mind-set parrellels.
very sad

Sadly, she jumped from the car. Even worse, her boyfriend (who was driving) just left her there.

Mr Torres' shoes and clothing were not knocked off him, therefore your argument is worthless

If you watch the video closely his cap is knocked off and lays in the street approximately fifteen feet away from where he fell and one of his shoes is just next to him near his right arm.
