Daily Hit and Run Accident Victims

This site means little to most visitors. But this year alone, over 1200 families will lose a loved one to this crime.

Effective September 5th, 2006, I have discontinued listing daily victim names on this site, due to the extensive time in daily research required to do it adequately. I maintain a full time job, and a marriage, and the time required to do the proper research has become far too time consuming, and I regretfully must discontinue over 2-1/2 years of daily listings.
