On August 25th, around 11:30p.m., four children were hit by a car when they stepped outside to get better reception on their cell phones in Summerville, South Carolina. The driver of the car did not stop after hitting the children. Thankfully, the South Carolina Highway Patrol arrested the driver on August 28th.
The children range in age from 10 years old to 14 years old. One child was released from the hospital, while the other three remain in the intensive care unit at Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston. They are expected to recover physically, but time will only tell what mental trauma these kids have endured.
