A week ago today, a 19-year-old lady was involved in a hit-and-run accident leaving her in a coma.

Again, this hits home. The young woman, Allison Manning, is from Indianola, IA and the accident had occured on Highway 65/69. Very close to home, just like the Indianola man, Jim Brown, that I had blogged about previously. Once the reader catches an article that may deal with people you know, you can't stop reading. Though the first article about made me cry tears of joy, this one had me about cry tears of sorrow.

Even though this accident may be old news, it is important to the community to find the person that had fled the scene. Journalists know what's important to us, and writes about it. Until the person that has caused Manning's coma is caught, this article will probably still be floating around in the local newspapers.

Journalists provide the correct information in case anyone has information about the accident, too. They list phone numbers of the police and Polk County Crimestoppers, making the article become helpful to the readers.
