FOLLOW UP: Hancock student critical in Mobile

HANCOCK COUNTY -- A 7-year-old boy struck by a car Thursday remains in critical condition in a Mobile hospital, authorities said.

A nursing supervisor at the University of South Alabama Women and Children’s Hospital said Logan Necaise is listed in critical condition this morning.

Logan was airlifted to Mobile after he was struck by a car in the 6000 block of Rocky Hill Dedeaux Road, sheriff’s Detective Brandon Norman said.

Logan, a student at Hancock Elementary, was picked up from school in a private vehicle and was hit while crossing the street at a relative’s home about 3:45 p.m., Norman said.

A school bus driver witnessed the accident, but the bus was not involved, he said.

The car driver told deputies he saw the boy in the road and tried to avoid him, Norman said.

Sheriff Steve Garber told the Sun Herald that Logan’s legs were broken and he may have a concussion. Hospital officials would not elaborate on Logan’s injuries.

Norman said the incident is under investigation, but does not anticipate charges against the driver.
