Just after 7 a.m. yesterday on the Niagara Street overpass over the QEW…a hit-and-run driver…mounted a bridge sidewalk and struck a young woman with such force she was catapulted off the overpass to her death on a roadway below.”

Horrible enough? Wait, there’s more.

Reportedly, “an off-duty Niagara police officer who arrived moments after the hit-and-run was shocked to see other drivers edging around the woman’s bleeding body. He just couldn’t believe people were driving right around her and not stopping to help.” (“Cars Drive Around Hit and Run Victim”; Paul Morse; Hamilton Spectator; 2007/04/27)
