FOX23 is learning more about Logan Henry, a student at North Intermediate High School  who was a victim of a hit and run on Wednesday.

Henry was running with his cross-country team at South Intermediate High School when he was hit by a truck that drove off.

Henry’s father told us that his son has been upgraded from critical to serious condition at St. Francis hospital. He has a broken leg and pelvis.

Meanwhile at his school, counselors were available today to students or staff members.

Friends and classmates typed words of support under the hashtag "Pray for Logan" on Twitter, wishing the freshman a fast recovery.

Police said the driver of the truck that hit Henry didn't stick around or call 911.

"Luckily in this case, there were witnesses around so they called ambulance personnel, officers to the scene quickly and get him transported to the hospital," said Cpl. Leon Calhoun with the Broken Arrow Police Department.

According to police, 18-year-old Jordan Hunter was driving the truck. He told police he drove off because he panicked and didn't know what to do. He returned 10 minutes later, at the urging of his mother.

He now faces charges of leaving the scene of a serious injury collision, which is a felony.

Meanwhile his classmates say Henry is a sweet and smart student and now are organizing other ways to show their support.

“We are going to take a picture and put it on a poster and we're going to send it to him. I think we’re going to sign it. We have a list of stuff we want kids to bring,” said Andra Fauvell, a North Intermediate High School freshman.

Hunter has been released. The district said the cross-country team practiced on Thursday, but took a different route because they are still shaken up by the accident.
