Teen Accused of Hitting Broken Arrow Athlete with Vehicle Due in Court
A court appearance for a Broken Arrow teen accused of leaving the scene of a traffic accident that left a cross-country athlete with a broken pelvis and leg was rescheduled.
Prosecutors charged 19-year-old Jordan Hunter in February with leaving the scene of a collision. He's accused of driving the vehicle that struck Logan Henry who had been running near the South Intermediate High School in Broken Arrow.
Court records indicate that Hunter is scheduled to appear for arraignment but it was rescheduled to the end of May. A judge will decide whether he will stand trial.
Previous reports from KTUL state that after Hunter struck Henry he returned to the scene, telling police he was the one responsible. BAPD said Hunter reportedly told his mother what happened and she followed him back to the scene of the accident.
Paramedics transported Henry in critical condition to an area hospital after the collision. He continues to recover from his injuries.
