It's so senseless. How can someone blithely strike a human being with an automobile and continue driving along? Why are we forcing people to walk on a "shoulder" instead of a safe and accessible sidewalk?
Police are searching for the driver of a vehicle who fled the scene after fatally striking a woman Saturday night as she walked on the northbound shoulder of Commerce Road with her 3-year-old son.Nayaskeika Cooper, 19, was only 200 feet from her driveway, just south of Pinefield Way, when the driver of the unknown vehicle struck her on her left side about 9:10 p.m. and knocked her into a ditch, Athens-Clarke police said.
Our thoughts & prayers are with Ms. Cooper's son and her family.
