Fort Worth Teen Killed in Hit-and-Run

Mother pleads for driver to come forward.

 
The mother of a 14-year-old boy killed by a hit-and-run driver Thursday night is begging the driver to surrender.
 
"Come forward. Turn yourself in. The damage is already done," De'Shundria Parks said. "Prolonging it is just going to make it worse. You have to face your consequences."
 
Her son, Deston Bibbs, was struck while riding his bicycle at about 9:20 p.m. along Crowley Road, just south of Sycamore School Road in south Fort Worth, police said.
 
The boy sustained broken bones and severe head trauma in the crash, police said. He was hospitalized overnight in critical condition and died Friday morning.
Parks said her son was heading to a Family Dollar store about a block away to buy some Gatorade and potato chips.
 
Bibbs was a seventh-grader at H.F. Stevens Middle School in Crowley.
He liked to play basketball, draw, play the drums, sing and just joke around.
"He was silly," his mother said. "He was the class clown."
But he also had a serious side. He wanted to join the Air Force to help people, she said.
Police said they don't know of any witnesses to the crash, but investigators were able to determine, based on the tire marks left on his clothing, that a sport utility vehicle or large truck struck the teen, police said.
Crime Stoppers is offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to an arrest and indictment in the case. Tipsters can remain anonymous. Anyone with information is asked to call 817-469-8477.
Meanwhile, investigators are looking at footage from red-light cameras and nearby surveillance cameras to try to narrow the search for the driver.
"If it was an accident, it was an accident," Parks said. "But you left. And you left my son there like he was nothing. He was something to me. And I will never get to see him again, ever."

Well, the way they make shows is, they make one show. That show's called a pilot. Then they show that show to the people who make shows, and on the strength of that one show they decide if they're going to make more shows.

Like you, I used to think the world was this great place where everybody lived by the same standards I did, then some kid with a nail showed me I was living in his world, a world where chaos rules not order, a world where righteousness is not rewarded. That's Cesar's world, and if you're not willing to play by his rules, then you're gonna have to pay the price.

You think water moves fast? You should see ice. It moves like it has a mind. Like it knows it killed the world once and got a taste for murder. After the avalanche, it took us a week to climb out. Now, I don't know exactly when we turned on each other, but I know that seven of us survived the slide... and only five made it out. Now we took an oath, that I'm breaking now. We said we'd say it was the snow that killed the other two, but it wasn't. Nature is lethal but it doesn't hold a candle to man.

You see? It's curious. Ted did figure it out - time travel. And when we get back, we gonna tell everyone. How it's possible, how it's done, what the dangers are. But then why fifty years in the future when the spacecraft encounters a black hole does the computer call it an 'unknown entry event'? Why don't they know? If they don't know, that means we never told anyone. And if we never told anyone it means we never made it back. Hence we die down here. Just as a matter of deductive logic.
