Family of Hit & Run Victim Begs Driver to Come Forward

The family of a South Carolina boy, struck by a hit and run driver, is asking for your help. Fifteen year old Dev Scott was hit and dragged by an SUV. It happened around 3:30 Thursday afternoon in Early Branch, South Carolina, near Yemassee.

Scott was airlifted to Memorial Health University where he's in critical but stable condition. His parents say he is showing some signs of improvement. Sunday, he opened his eyes and looked at his mother and stepfather.

Police are still looking for the driver who hit him. They're searching for a 1990s model teal-colored Ford Explorer with front-end damage that left the scene of the accident. His family is asking for the driver to come forward.

"I would like to plead to the person who hit my son, to please turn yourself in to the authorities," Jerrell Bishop, Scott's stepfather, told WTOC. "My stepson is in a very bad situation in the hospital. He's in critical condition. I just pour my heart out to you and beg you to turn yourself in."

If you have any information about what happened, call police.
