Hit-and-Run Victim Released from Hospital

There's some good news tonight for a South Carolina teen critically injured in a hit-and-run accident. Dev Scott, 15, is back home after spending more than two weeks at Memorial Health in Savannah.

Last week, Daniel Bell turned himself in to the Hampton County Sheriff's Office as the person responsible for hitting Dev and leaving the scene.

Doctors released Dev from the hospital Saturday afternoon. His family says he is using a wheelchair and walker to get around and still has to come to Savannah three times a week for treatment on his lungs.

They say Dev is expected to make a full recovery, but may need more surgery on his leg in the future.
