Brentwood teen returns home for holidays
A Brentwood teen who was seriously injured in a hit-and-run crash in November left the hospital Thursday, just in time to celebrate the holidays with his family.
Michael Hayes, 13, was hit by a minivan near Carlton Avenue in Central Islip. He suffered brain swelling, bruised ribs, a broken ankle and needed facial reconstructive surgery.
Police are still searching for the driver, who never stopped and never turned themselves in.
