    I struggle with situations like this. The driver may be a decent person that made a terrible mistake and panicked. Definitely cowardly to flee the scene but it still could be a situation where this person has no criminal history and just made one bad decision here. If this was a person with a conscience they are not going to recover from this until they turn themselves in and start taking responsibility. Do the right thing mystery driver and come clean for these poor victims, and your own well being.

    I can't imagine the heart ache and shock for this Mother. I can't fathom how horrible this must be for her. It's like one of the other comments said, the Lord knows and he will take care of the situation especially when it involves his children. I hope they find this creep and the very extent of the law will put him away for a long time. He is a coward and people like that do not belong on the streets of our country.

    The law may never catch up with some people, but eternal justice will.

    We always have the choice:
    ...to do wrong.
    ...to repent.
    ...to change.

    As a people we're trying to avoid responsibility more than ever. In all corners of life people are cheating the truth and hurting others. I truly believe that our time is running out.

    hpr, but only if they have something called a conscience. Those things seem to be moving toward endangered species status.

    This is so sad and I feel so bad for the mother of this child but she is not without blame. Why was she not crossing in a crosswalk? So dangerous. Also, they say the person stop briefly and may not of seen the toddler that was thrown from the stroller but only the mother and child still standing and felt all was well. It's so hard to say unless we witnessed this. We cannot assume anything but I agree the driver should not of left the scene but stayed and checked to make sure everyone was ok. We may never know.

    We all have a tendency to get very emotional when these types of things happen but in reality the punishment for leaving the scene of the accident is not going to be for the person to be in prison for a "long" time. However, that person will have to live with the guilt of what they did regardless of what the law does.

    a"fin" or a "spoiler?"

    the person that did this should be in prison for a long time once they are caught. Not so much because of hitting the stroller, but for leaving the scene, knowing that they hit someone.
