    I'll wait for the investigation.

    What was the terrain?

    I hit a 60 lb. doe on Christmas Eve several years ago, after dark, on way to rural family gathering. Had to search pretty hard to find her. Flipped over top of drivers side and down an embankment.

    I put it out of it's misery and local Sheriff's Deputy pulled up in his truck and took her home to eat.

    Quite a difference between a 60 pound doe and a grown man...

    I had a deer run into the side of my car during rutting season back when I lived in Virginia. The impact caved in the driver's side door. I had to get out on the passenger side. Don't know how anyone could hit a person and not know it unless they were completely ****faced.

    Maybe.

    Depends on several factors.

    Angle of the hit, terrain, how the victim fell after impact, etc.

    Hence the need to investigate before drawing a firm conclusion. Doesn't really matter what someone else did (including myself), or damage to a different vehicle in a different instance.

    Just saying I don't trust much I see in the news anymore, especially first reports, why should this be correct?

    Yup, straight out of the Ted Kennedy CYA Play Book.

    Where did you get this info?

    The 2 linked stories don't list the guys statement, only that he gave one. One of them also said he immediately called 911.

    There's lots of useless info about his political life, where he was coming from, opinions of the victims family members, and no investigative information.

    So how did you get to a Teddy Kennedy scenario?

    I've seen people get yeeted pretty good at sub freeway speeds. Whenever we had a rollover with people maybe ejected we would make a point of looking farther than we would expect, just in case.

    Maybe the guy that got hit was in a deer costume. Like one of those furries that dress up and go to parties that way. Saw an episode of C.S.I. where something like that happened.

    I apologize. I still can’t find the part he had a young woman in his car.

    Depends on his political affiliation.

    I drew no firm conclusion. I simply don't believe you can hit a person with a car and not know it. I've hit plenty of animals, and not one has gone unnoticed.

    My question is, was the victim drinking? Where on the roadway was the pedestrian when hit? Normally one doesn’t drive on the shoulder or walk in the roadway.

    Most I’ve know that got hit while walking were drinking.

    Shouldn't be hard to find where the initial impact of the person who was hit. Just about every ped accident I investigated the peds were knocked out of their shoes and the shoes were still tied just sitting there in the street.
