Is he a kid who believes strongly in education, or was he just too stunned to do anything else?
12 year old Sammy Ruiz was waiting for the school bus outside his home in Mattydale, when a possibly drunk driver ran him down and dragged Sammy about 50 feet. A neighbor stepped in front of the car and pulled Sammy from underneath
After he was back on his feet and the driver had sped away, Sammy got on the school bus and reported for classes, as if nothing had happened.
But as time passed, pain set in and Sammy told others about the hit-and-run. The school called his parents, who took him to the doctor. No serious injuries were found. Sheriff’s Department investigators are still trying to find the gold-colored four door sedan that ran Sammy down, and the two men inside.
