The 13-year-old who suffered a head injury Monday afternoon in a hit-and-run incident in St. Paul has been released from the hospital, KARE 11 reports.
A police officer traveling the streets in his squad car discovered the injured Brandon Smith lying in the street at University Avenue and Grotto Street in the frigid cold.
Police on Wednesday released a description of a vehicle wanted in connection with the case: a 1992 Buick Park Avenue.
"God had his hands on my baby," the boy's mother told the Star Tribune.
"It's almost a miracle – he's up, he's walking. His face is pretty swollen. His mouth is busted up. Remarkably, no broken bones. He had a little blood hemorrhaging in his brain, but he's been talking," Charlotte Igwe told the newspaper.
Given that the seventh-grader was sprawled unconscious in the street for an unknown number of minutes, it's possible other drivers drove around him, police said, the Pioneer Press reported. Police found a vehicle's side mirror and bits of plastic car parts at the scene.
