“I was trying to talk to him, but he was delirious and all he was asking about was the bicycle. He come in an ambulance then said the person who hit him dropped him off at the hospital. I asked him if he got the name of the person who hit him. He said no; that the person only dropped him off and gave him twenty dollars. I told him what’s twenty dollars—you got more money—what’s twenty dollars. And he has to get a CAT scan. So he start telling me he going out; he going down to investigate about this. But all I want is the person who hit him to come forward and help with medical expenses because…”

“What did the doctors say about his injuries?”

“He is under observation right now. He tells me that he is in a lot of pain in his head. They give him medication. When I went there yesterday, he wasn’t talking like first you know.”

    Whoever did this horrible thing to my uncle should be punished. What do you
    think $20 is going to do? Yeah you took him to the hospital but you do not know the kind of damaged that he has sustained. If you so much as cared for a human being you should have left you name . Whoever you are is still considered tobea criminal because it is a HIT AND RUN.
    Remember KARMA is a b – - – H.

    The driver needs to go back and help some more. Apologize or go the police station and report the case. They will not kill you and you will not feel that burden on your soul. If you do not have a heart then you will remain in the run untill your turn comes around. Be nice to this man, please!
