To the hit-and-run driver

Our friend came home Tuesday night, sat down, and said, “I was hit by a truck.” He seemed normal, except for saying he was hit by a truck. He was crossing Main Street and he was hit by a truck. He seemed to be caught in a loop, and this usually intelligent man stared blankly when we told him we were taking him to the hospital. “But, I was only hit by a truck …”

Lucky for him he is OK. If you consider OK being transferred down to Roseville for the night because his brain was bleeding. He may have a cracked vertebrae too. He could hardly walk the next day.

You can only imagine what it is like to be hit by a truck. You do know what it is like to be driving that truck. You know what it is like to drive away. Maybe you wondered if that man went home alone, fell asleep, and never woke up because his head injuries were too severe.

You didn’t care. You didn’t call the police. Maybe someone who reads this and saw who did it will.
