The victim of a hit-and-run driver Tuesday night is recovering, but said he would be doing even better if the driver of the vehicle that struck him would turn himself in to police.
“We don’t mean any ill will,” Juneau resident Manual Antonio Mendoza, 70, said. “We just want to believe in being human.”
Mendoza was struck in the 6500 block of Glacier Highway at about 11:10 p.m. after he had picked up his wife at Walmart. The elderly couple both work there, Mendoza has the morning shift, and his wife the evening shift.
