Police tracked down the first hit-and-run driver on the day it happened, but they’re still looking for the second driver.

Gonzalez leaves behind a 9-year-old son. His mom says the boy is still trying to understand what happened.

“We need some kind of closure. It just feels so wrong that there are people out there who literally took a life, took his dad, and nothing, no consequences at all?” she said.

Police say the second driver was in an early 2000s two-door Honda Civic that likely has front end damage.
