In today's news a hit and run involving a car.

What's the betting we won't get the spittle flecked, venom laced diatribes and generalisations of the sort following the Philip Benwell / Leila Crofts incident near Branksome Chine.

He was only riding a bike. The culprit here was in charge of a 1 ton or more battering ram.

How did he lift a one ton battering ram? also there are rare this days, they seem to have really gone out of fashion since the middle ages.

I was thinking the same thing. 13 year old, 10:30'ish. There maybe a good reason like, dentist, doctor or something.

He or she should be treated in exactly the same way as Cyclist Philip Benwell who mowed down nine-year-old Leila Crofts near Branksome Chine beach, it doesn't really matter what the vehicle was, what matters is that the driver left the scene.
I hope this young girl fully recovers from her injuries.

Not wishing to sound silly, but where in the article does it say whether she was hit by a car or any other vehicle?

This is so poorly written I can't help thinking of a certain Radiohead video where the guy is lying on the pavement and no one knows why!

You lot are amazing - you've already found someone guilty and there hasn't even been a reported crime yet! Get a life, the lot of you.
