To the Editor:
To the man speeding in his dark Toyota pickup truck who hit head-on and killed our 2-year-old chocolate Lab on Lambert’s Cove Road this morning (Oct. 31): Know what you have done. You hit her so hard I could hear the impact in the house, a hundred yards away. You also drove off without stopping. But the neighborhood horseback riders saw you, and tried to stop you. We have called the West Tisbury police.
To the vet and techs at My Pet’s Vet, thank you for everything.
To the folks on MV who set speed limits, we suggest you consider enforcing them on Lambert’s Cove Road, where they are chronically, egregiously ignored.
We go home to Virginia, from our beloved family summer place here, with such broken hearts.
