The guy was driving with a suspended license, hits a guy, kills him, stands over him, looks at him and drives away. Coward on all levels.

Sad no one reports that the man was walking in the middle of the street around a dark corner and the accident was unavoidable. Adam stopped and tried to help him - but he had already died. The screaming the neighbors heard was Adam, not the victim. He called 911, and he turned himself in. No one spotted the vehicle near Kiley ranch, he told them where it was parked, waiting for them. This was a horrible, tragic ACCIDENT.
