We received a note from a reader named Patrick who is most assuredly not happy. Here is his tale:
This is to the person with the silver/gray colored GMC Yukon who hit my truck while I was standing there and did not bother to stop for the accident on Nottingham Road Sunday at approximately 9 p.m. and was traveling too fast for me to get into my truck to chase, nor hear me yelling at him to stop. I would just like to tell him how appreciative I am that he did this on such a wonderful weekend, celebrating the freedoms that we have, which now include the ability to leave the scene of an accident.
This isn’t good. If you’re the driver of said Yukon, it’s time to ‘fess up. If your conscience is bothering you, feel free to contact the paper. We’ll put Patrick in touch with you. He’s probably cooled down a little bit by now.
