I am very sorry the man died. Was not right the driver left. It states he was wearing dark clothing, people do not stop to think and realize how hard it is to see somebody when it is dark outside and they wear dark clothing. I have come close to hitting more than one person, especially in that area after dark because you cannot see them until you are almost on top of them.

My mom works where he used to work, and i feel sorry for this guy. Because from what she heard was that he didnt get out of the car on his own. He got kicked out because he was obvlious drunk n was about to hit the girl who was his gf. Instead of calling the cops or any of his family to go drop him off, its retarded that they will just leave him at such time on a road like that. I cant believe there is people who dont use their brain in such situations....i hope his stupid gf goes to jail for doing such thing!

Todos sabemos que la manera que murio no fue la apropiada pero cuando una persona esta totalmente en estado de ebriedad y mas aun con droga en el cuerpo ese es el resultado la muerte tal cual como el la busco. da pena por los hijos (4) que quedan en la orfandad pero tampoco iba a ser buen ejemplo para ellos teniendo la vida que tenia de la cual abusaba mucho, todos tenian conocimiento del alto consumo de drogas de el incluida su familia y la manera de comportarse (agresivo) con las personas.
