How can this person be to blame if someone is lying in the road pissed.Just Unlucky for him not the person driving the car DON'T WAST THE TAX PAYERS MONEY SOUTH YORKSHIRE POLICE .Hard words but true and my heart goes out to this mans family But who was to blame ???????

sounds to me yes sounds like a possible on a person who would do this - a car can see if something is oin the road and will certainly know if they have run over someone, round that area there are children too and at that time there will be alot of people and children still about drivers have to be aware of potential collissions as have best view of where they are travelling and have the means to stop

excuse me ya fukin prick im that mans daughter and we dont yet no how he ended up in the road, so until we do you should keep your fukin opinions to yourself,  as it has nothing at all to do with you unless u no something i dont??, and for what its worth when people are driving their eyes are supposed to be on the fukin ROAD!! and the fact they havent come forward speaks volumes to me. so what if he was drinking it was his birthday! im sure any driver would of seen a fully grown man lying in the fukin road so keep your opinions to yourself and have some fukin respect!!!!!!!!!

I will tell you what, firstly ARE YOU A TAX PAYER, secondly so what if he had had a drink it was his Birthday after all, and if the person who was driving the car had nothing to hide then why didnt they ring the Police and say they thought they had ran someone over, and you remember you have family and what if this had happened to one of them, i think all you have got is one very BIG MOUTH, this is or should i say was my brother, if you want to put your foot anywhere put in your BIG MOUTH.
