Hit and Run Crime: Roxana Sorina Buta

The city's negligence, in particular, is shameful when it comes to vehicle-related deaths. As long as a driver says he/she didn't see the person, they are only charged with a misdemeanor, and more often than not released without so much as a fine. Roxana Sorina Buta was killed in a hit and run by a Department of Transportation driver who so far faces no charges. This has to change.

      This beautiful girls whose picture I just saw in Union Square had just begun her life. There must be a consequence to driving recklessly. My father-in-law was also killed by a hit and run driver and his loss has forever changed our lives. The law must be changed to protect the victims and their families. She was innocent here. My heart breaks for her family.

      My friend's friend is in a coma right now for a hit and run, and the driver won't even get charged if this law does not go into effect!!
