Boy Injured in Hit-and-Run Is Home from Hospital

A San Diego boy who suffered a fractured skull in a hit-and-run collision in San Ysidro has been released from the hospital.

Lennox Lake, 6, was back home Tuesday after his release from Rady Children's hospital.

The boy was injured May 6 in a hit-and-run crash at Camino De La Plaza and Dairy Mart Road as the family was returning from a trip to Disneyland.

Constantino Banda, 38, collided into the rear passenger area on the driver's side of the Lennox family car. That's where Lennox was strapped into his car seat, the family said.

Banda, who has been deported 15 times in more than a decade, faces charges of driving under the influence, driving without a license and felony hit and run. He was arrested by U.S. Border Patrol agents after the crash.

Banda pleaded not guilty in court. His bail was set at $23,000.
