ST. JAMES -- An 8-year-old boy struck by a car Thursday night on Jordan Road was in stable but critical condition at Children's National Medical Center in Washington, D.C., his school principal said Saturday night.
The boy, David Greeley, is a third-grader at Fountain Rock Elementary School, not far from where the accident occurred.
"His family seemed hopeful," Fountain Rock Principal Mike Telemeco said in a telephone interview Saturday evening. Telemeco was at the hospital Friday night, he said.
David was in an intensive care unit Friday after a lengthy surgery and several blood transfusions, Washington County Sheriff's Deputy Michael Thompson told The Herald-Mail Friday night.
"It's really sad. He is a wonderful, wonderful little boy," Telemeco said.
A spokeswoman at Children's National Medical Center said Saturday night that she was not authorized to release information about David's condition.
