Leach released from hospital

Former Jackson County Supervisor Frank Leach's stay at Ocean Springs Hospital for injuries he received in a Nov. 24 hit and run accident has ended.

A hospital spokeswoman said Leach was discharged late Friday.

Leach was hospitalized after a hit and run driver he'd just confronted slammed into him just north of his home on Cherokee Glenn Drive.

Leach was dragged some 40 to 60 feet and suffered broken ribs and a collapsed lung.

Ocean Springs Police spokesman Michael Pol said Monday that the investigation is continuing, though no suspects have been named.

Anyone with information should call the Ocean Springs Police Department at 875-2211.
