An elderly man was sent to the hospital in Scott County late Wednesday morning after being hit by what authorities say was a drunk driver.
The incident happened just before noon near Stamping Ground Park in Georgetown. Scott County officials say 24-year old George Byers was behind the wheel when he struck Dazine Young, who officials say was walking along the shoulder of the road when Byers struck him.
Officials say Young was knocked unconscious, and there is no word yet on his condition.
Byers was arrested and charged with driving while under the influence and second-degree assault.
