Its never ceases to amaze me how much sensationalizing the media does in their reporting. Channel 12 does not even know the difference between a "Cigarette" type boat and a tunnel hull as evidenced by their report on the 11:00 Sunday news. Which stated; "A cigarette boat similar to the one shown here".....a tunnel hull!
I agree with all on the board that there was NO excuse for this guy to leave the scene of this accident as he did. However, we don't know all the circumstances surrounding this accident. I pass SEVERAL idiots every year at night WITH NO LIGHTS ON. It might not have been a factor in this incident...but easily could have been in many instances. When people are out at night with no lights on, any accident that results is MORE their fault in my opinion. Again, no excuse for this guy to leave the scene but lets wait for all the facts.
