    The way the news casters covered this story during the 10 news was disheartening. They seemed more concerned about the possible charges of the driver versus the well being of the mother & baby and actual capture of the driver.

    How very sad for both the mother and her child. My prayers go out to them and the family. Being a mother who lost a child , my heart hurts for this lady.
    What has happened in out society that a driver does not feel responsible?
    What a coward to just drive away.
    Hopefully the police will find them or someone with a conscience will turn this driver in.
