killed in hit and run) "my husband, best friend and father of two children gavin gladding was stolen from us by a wreckless driver." susan explained to lawmakers how her husband was out jogging when he was hit by a suspected drunk, unlicensed driver. "the driver hid from law enforcement for almost a week while my family struggled with the loss of gavin and also with the weight of not knowing what had happened and who is reponsible." her husband inspired the proposed "gavin's law" which would increase prison time for hit and run drivers who cause serious injury or death... opponents of the measure say there are unintended consequences of the bill...
