Update:

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – Bandaged up, and bruised, but ultimately doing okay, 21-month-old Kendarius Brooks is on the road to recovery. 

“We have to keep him covered up so he doesn’t get infections,” Kendarius’s grandmother Rhonda Brooks said. 

At the beginning of April, Little Rock Police says Elvin Williams III was backing up his car at Madison Heights Apartments when he hit the boy. 

“He was bloody and scarred up and was passing out on me I actually thought I was losing him.” 

Rhonda says she briefly talked to Willams after the accident. 

“He basically told me he was sorry and he left the scene,” Rhonda said. 

A warrant was issued for Willams and he eventually turned himself into police Wednesday. 

“I don’t think he is a bad person but even if it was an accident just comply with the police and give them the information that they need so my grandson can get his justice.” 

She’s grateful her grandson is okay and will learn about what happened later in life. 

“I’m just glad he’s young enough he won’t remember this. He’ll know the stories because I will tell him.”
