Deputies Find Driver Who Dragged Boy

The story had a happy ending for 12 year old Sammy Ruiz, but not for the driver who hit Sammy with his car in Mattydale last Friday, dragged the boy beneath it, and then drove away.studentdraggedbycar.jpg

Onondaga County Sheriff’s deputies say they know who did it, and tell The Syracuse Post-Standard they’ll name him publicly after they finish their investigation.

Sammy is fine. In fact, he was helped to his feet by a neighbor and got on the school bus he was waiting for when he was struck. When teachers heard what had happened, the school sent Sammy home. The dragging tore holes in his parka and backpack, but bruises and sore muscles were his only injuries.
