“I’m not thinking about her. I don’t have any hard feelings for her really because I don’t even know her. I concentrate on what’s true, on what’s noble and what’s praise-worthy,” Sandy Marthaler said. “Nobody is immune to bad things happening to them. I don’t like hit-and-runs, I think it’s very irresponsible. I think if you hit somebody you need to own up to it and stop your car and get out talk to the police.”
