What's with driving along with a man in the windshield?? Reminds me of the TX woman who did that -- and the man died!!
And I remember a CSI show based on a similar incident.
People are messed up.

That's a very odd tory. I wonder if the driver was impaired with drugs or alcohol?I do not intend to tiptoe through life only to arrive safely at death!

I would hope he was under the influnce of something and scared to get caught then to think he just didnt care ,but I really am just hoping for a mental illness as the cause of his actions. Driving drunk is stupid and shows poor decision making along with the incident in question it is unlikey he can stop making poor decissions. So I am hoping he has a mental illness as that can be treated and it just makes me feel safer. or does it???

We had a similar case here in CA. As a matter of fact I think Paperdoll was on the jury,

Christopher Swiridowsky got a piddly three years for the hit & run, which thankfully didn't kill anyone:
But this also happened:
Attorney General Peter F. Kilmartin today announced that Christopher Swiridowsky, age 34, was sentenced to a total of 50 years, with 27 to serve for the October 28, 2007 rape of a 26-year old Providence woman...
During the course of the trial, the State proved beyond a reasonable doubt that in the early morning hours on October 28, 2007 Swiridowsky pulled a 26-year old woman into his truck and raped her at gunpoint. After the assault, the defendant pushed the victim naked on to the street and drove away in his truck. The assailant was not known to the victim...
In June 2010, Swiridowsky was convicted of leaving the scene of an accident with serious bodily injury. A DNA sample was taken from Swiridowsky upon conviction. The sample was entered into CODIS in January 2011, which resulted in a match to the 2007 sexual assault.
