I see that a lot where a person in passing another car in the oncoming lane. You look up and bail out into the ditch.

Very sad news. Sympathy for the families, to lose your son at such a young age, with so much promise ahead.

Glad to hear the driver has turned himself in; it's too common in Texas for Mexican Nationals to flee across the border and never be heard of again. It's happened before in cyclist fatalities; Miji Reoch being a prominent case.
