A Summers County man has been charged in connection with intentional hit and run about 7 p.m. Thursday near Brenton, according to Wyoming County Sheriff Randall Aliff.

Roger Hurley, 32, of Jumping Branch, is charged with malicious wounding and driving revoked/third offense, Aliff said.

Additionally, the vehicle Hurley was driving was believed to be stolen from Summers County, the sheriff said. Authorities were awaiting verification before adding those charges, Aliff said.
