But a hit-and-run coward is caught...
Oh man, how do I be delicate with this one? Well, I don't because even if the driver is a 75-year-old chick, she's the scourge of the earth for running a kid over and hiding. Sorry, Suzanne Lammers of Villanova, not even the hoity-toity lawyer you buy in order to spin the I-thought-it-was-a-deer angle will not be able to convince me to stop saying you deserve jail time if the allegations become court-proven fact. Deer can't ride bikes.
Old age isn't a defense for stupidity and/or a sense of entitlement that you can do whatever you want, whenever you want. From KYW 1060:
The woman police say was involved in a hit-and-run in Bryn Mawr that sent a teenage boy to the hospital this month has been located.
Authorities say anonymous tipsters led them to Suzanne Lammers of Villanova -- and her vehicle, which matched the description of the car that hit the 13-year-old. He'd been riding his bike at the intersection of New Gulph Road and Morris Avenue when he was struck.
If I can speak to Mrs. Lammers, inmate #AARP: You (allegedly) mowed a 13-year-old down but the three-quarters of a century you've been on earth didn't instill even a modicum of dignity to make you stop and see if he was ok.
Shame on you.
Shame on your family.
And mad, mad props to the tipsters!
