Mexico- still the hit and run capital of the world. Traffic accidents happen there often and they’re almost always hit and runs, with the only exceptions being accidents in which the offending vehicle becomes undrivable so a hit and run becomes a no option.
74 year old Ernesto Torres Naranjo was struck by a passing vehicle that knocked him off the bicycle and ran over his head. El señor died with skull cracked and brain matter spilled on the spot while his killer continued on his merry way.
It is incredibly sad that a man who battled along for 74 years and was still fit enough to ride a bicycle got killed by a irresponsible coward behind a wheel of a motor vehicle.
Ernesto Torres Naranjo was heading home on Mexico – Laredo stretch of the road between Mante and Valles in Tamaulipas. His corpse was noticed by another motorist who drove by shortly after the hit and run. That motorist stopped and called emergency. There was nothing anyone could do for the victim anymore, but at least there was someone with decency to report the road kill and prevent further damage to the body from passing cars that may not notice it.
