Pa. boy is home after hit-run outside Giants game

- Associated Press - Monday, September 12, 2011

PHILADELPHIA (AP) - A suburban Philadelphia boy has returned home more than a month after he was struck by a hit-and-run driver after attending a Phillies game in San Francisco.

Nine-year-old Ryan White returned home Saturday, greeted by more than 100 friends, neighbors and well-wishers.

White was hit Aug. 4 outside AT&T Park after seeing the Phillies shut out the San Francisco Giants. He sustained a brain injury, lacerated liver and broken bones and spent 11 days in a San Francisco hospital before being transported to one in Philadelphia.

Members of the Phillies had visited White in the hospital during his ordeal.

A San Francisco-area man is charged in the crash. Police say he was driving the wrong way on a one-way street when he hit White.
