“I just want justice for my nephew,” Teresa Johnson said.

It may seem like a simple plea, but Johnson said that request is difficult. The day her nephew, 65-year-old Ross, was hit and killed is a day she won’t forget. 

Ross was leaving the Shell gas station when he was struck.

It’s been a year and the driver is still out there.

“They should not get no rest, no sleep or nothing until they come forward, because you wouldn’t hit a dog and leave him in the street. He’s a human being," Johnson said. "I forgive you. Turn yourself in and be the man, you know, be a man. You know you hit somebody... You know your car is damaged and you know what you did that night."
