SEASON 1, EPISODE 118 - Rush and Valens investigate a case involving the hit-and-run car accident death of Craig Cardiff (David Andriole) on New Year's Eve 1999. Rush is introduced to Tami Franklin (Leigh Kelly), a recovering alcoholic, who now admits to experiencing a temporary loss of consciousness while driving that evening and killing Cardiff. However, the evidence soon reveals the woman was not, in fact, responsible for his death. After speaking with Cardiff's widow, Sue (Stacy Edwards - ""Houdini,"" ""In the Company of Men""), as well as several key suspects related to the investigation, the detectives begin to suspect that Cardiff was not merely a hit-and-run casualty but a victim of foul play.
