Cars kills countless people ever year. Hitting someone with your car on purpose is akin to shooting someone — a car can be used as a deadly weapon. I don’t know the full details of the story below, but from Chris DeMorro’s retelling of it on sister site Gas2, it certainly looks like a potential felony for the driver who hit one of our Important Media writers, Susanna Schick, and fled the scene of the crime. Susanna is suffering horrible injuries (see below) and I’m sure she would greatly appreciate any help you can give her.
Here’s more from Chris — details of the incident and a way to chip in and help Susanna out:
