HARDEEVILLE, S.C. (WSAV) — Police have arrested Christopher Wright in connection with a hit-and-run accident that left one Hardeeville teen in critical condition.
The arrest comes after WSAV News 3 spoke to the parents of the victim who said they were hoping for a miracle.
The parents of the 14-year-old victim told News 3 they were searching for answers after their son was seriously injured following being hit riding his four-wheeler along Highway 17. They say after that day, their lives were changed forever.
Police say Wright turned himself in Jan. 17. He is charged with traffic hit and run with great bodily injury.
It is not yet clear whether Wright has been booked into jail, but police are asking that anyone with information related to the incident contact Franklin Lemus at the Hardeeville Police Department 843-784-2233.
