SUMMERVILLE, SC (WCSC) -

A boy who was struck by a car in a hit-and-run in Summerville on Saturday was released from the hospital.

According to family members, the 13-year-old boy was released from MUSC on Wednesday. The boy was one of four children who was struck by a car. A 14 year old and 10 year old girl are still in the hospital. Sydney Hopkins, 10, was released earlier this week.

Philip Andrew Wucherer is charged in the incident and was given a $600,000 bond Wednesday morning. He's charged with three counts of leaving the scene of a collision involving great bodily injury and one count of leaving the scene of a collision involving personal injury.

The incident happened around 11:30 p.m. Saturday on Paddock Way, located in the Sangaree area, when four children between the ages of 10 and 14 sneaked out of their home to access a wireless network near a curb across the street.

They say they were then mowed down by an out-of-control driver in a silver Ford Taurus.

Highway patrol officials say Wucherer was taken into custody at his workplace on Trolley Road in Dorchester County around 12:15 p.m. on Tuesday.
