    Pretty hard to make a high-speed getaway when you have a Prius for an anchor!

      Sounds like biggest credit goes to witness(es) who got plates for both vehicle and trailer.

    Please Seattle throw the driver in prison.  The driver hit someone and drove away.  We don’t want people like that amongst us.

    It’s time to hold the perp driver accountable and make them pay all the cost associated with their actions!

    The city really needs to cut the grass roadside on Brandon so people have some where to walk. Two hit and runs in four weeks is two too many.

    With the amount of crimes that happen there (murder, rape, hit and run ect…) 26th/Juneau needs it own WSB tag.

Sorry, comment time is over.
