Of course, I feel for the family of the victim. I always wonder why someone would be out on a bicycle at 1:30 am. The time of the accident seems to be a contributing factor. My first thought is that the truck driver had been drinking. What was a husband with young children doing out at that time of morning? Did the bicyclist contribute to the accident by being in the wrong section of the roadway. We may never know the real details and tend to convict the vehicle driver. Leaving the scene of an accident, especially one with injuries or a fatality, is hard to understand if a person was not under the influence. It certainly makes one think the driver is guilty of wrongdoing if they flee. Maybe with a 2002 DUI, the driver thought that he would be thought guilty no matter what. I guess no one knows how someone would react in that situation. It is just sad that someone had to lose their life. I feel for both families in this situation. Nothing will bring the victim back to life.
