INDIANAPOLIS -- For the families of hit-and-run victims, grieving their loved ones is made especially hard by the lack of answers.

Pamela Grant knows what that feels like. Her daughter, Tanya Turman, was killed by a hit-and-run driver in March of this year.

"It's really hard to deal with this the way that my daughter was left," Turman said. "The person that did it was gone for 11 days. He just hit her and took off."

Knowing the pain hit-and-runs cause, Turman formed the "Silent Angels" support group for other families in the same position. They met for the first time this week.

A 31-year-old man, Cory Patrick, was arrested for hitting Turman. He was expected in court Tuesday for a pre-trial hearing.
