A hit-and-run accident Sunday night left one McComb teen in the hospital with multiple injuries.

Deputy Chief Brad Bellipanni said the driver veered off the road on Old Industrial Road Sunday at 8:20 p.m., striking Kenneth Robichaux, 17, of 1005 Paradise Lane, with the front passenger side of his 1998 Chevrolet pickup.

Johnny Netherland, 68, of 1160 Frank Oakes Road, was charged with felony fleeing the scene of an accident, but officials said more charges are pending.

Robichaux sustained injuries to his ribs, arms and spine and was taken to the hospital, Chief Deputy Brad Bellipanni said.

He said Netherland was not intoxicated, and sheriff’s investigators are looking into why he veered off the road.
