The man, whose name wasn’t released, was pronounced dead at a hospital.

    Thank you, witness, for following Tashima Littleton and leading police to her.
    Did her drinking matter? Or would the “pedestrian” on I-225 have been hit anyway?
    Did Littleton’s passenger try to get her to stop and help?
    Was the “pedestrian” also drinking?

    ^ No. Most people are wonderful.
    Good people would stop and try to help the person, regardless of fault.
    Here, we learn what kind of persons Tashima Littleton and her passsenger are.
    Or is it alcohol which we see?

    I don’t really know her that well anymore. You know folk grow up and go their separate ways and all. I’ve seen her around from time to time. She’s never really had an evil streak or anything in her. At least from what I knew. Hitting someone in a car and killing them is wild though. And so much worse because she left the scene.
