    Was Koziatek drunk or impaired? Even if sober, he fled with a clear head. No excuse either way.

    Was Gudiel drunk or impaired? Did he just stumble into the path of Koziatek? Maybe he did’nt even know he hit him. Speculation is a two way street.

    Even if Gudiel was the impaired one, and driver wasnt, the driver still left the scene. Yes, certainly, he could have stumbled in front of the moving driver. Its a pretty tough sell to say you didnt know you hit something that is bigger than a rabbitt. Nor would that arguement work in a courtroom. Bottom line is he left the scene.

  • i saw the guy already free doing his laundry
    i think the charges wasn’t applied with justice
