11-year-old hit by alleged drunk driver released from hospital

JACKSON COUNTY, KY (WAVE) – An 11-year-old boy is home from the hospital after police said he was hit by a drunk driver Monday night.

Kyle Jones survived being hit by the accused drunk driver while he was chasing animals near his farm on Lunsford Hollow Road.

Jones said, "I was chasing my animals and playing out in the big field. Then he made a big U turn and came back, and I heard his truck and shouted watch out y'all." He said that is all he remembers before going unconscious.

Witnesses said the truck that hit Jones was speeding.

A cast now protects his broken arm and he is scheduled for surgery in a few weeks.

Police said the driver, 44-year-old Donald Lunsford, was under the influence of drugs and alcohol.
