I live near this location. The Hispanics walk in the middle of the service road, often with dark clothes on. It is an epidemic. I'm surprised more don't get hit/killed.

my mind has always have been over their because of the number of fatality's that is going on their. they still have not solved the other deaths of the hit and runs of others. this saddens me a great deal. prayers for the family of this gentlemen and others who get hit. it is terrifying, even when we cross at a light. you risk your life everyday at intersections and side roads. prayers for all of us and the one that hits any of us because they will suffer for a long time and that is worse. "Word of Earth".

Let's all hold hands and sing kumbuya now.

It's "there", not their. Capitalize the first letter of each sentence. "Word to your mother".

All you have to do is manage to not walk in front of a moving car and paying attention to your surroundings. The TBD article stated, "The striking vehicle remained on the scene, police say. It's still unclear if any charges will be filed against the driver." If so, your report should be amended to reflect this, as it was not a "hit and run". It might have been a hit while running.
