Denver Police and Metro Denver Crime Stoppers hope that two billboards and twenty bus stop ads will help turn up information about a hit-and-run driver, according to CBS Denver. The billboards show a mother and her two children. The children were killed when they were hit by a car as the family walked home from school. The mother brought her children to the United States from Myanmar trying to find a better life, but after the accident that took her two sons, police have been unable to turn up the vehicle or the driver. They hope that someone who knows something about the driver will see the billboards and come forward.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, more than 4000 pedestrians are killed in traffic accidents each year. Unfortunately, in some of these cases, the driver who hits the pedestrian flees the scene. Often, people who have some information about the driver or the vehicle don’t come forward because they don’t think that their information will be enough. However, in many cases, several people bringing small pieces of information to the police allow them to find the vehicle or the driver. It is important not to give up hope, and to keep looking for justice.
