One week after being hit by a car and suffering a broken clavicle and burns, an 8-year-old Shawnee boy is continuing to recover at OU Children's Hospital in Oklahoma City.

Logan Skelton suffered third-degree burns to his bottom and has undergone skin graft surgeries, his mother, Alma, said.

And while passing the time in a hospital would be difficult for anyone unable to sit down or be on their back, it's been tough on Logan, who is also missing being at school and is unable to play in a football game today with his second-grade Wolves team.

Logan was hit by a car Sept. 30 in the area of Rose Drive and Rickey Road. Logan — and about nine other children — were playing outside around a curb area about 5:45 p.m. that day. Alma said Logan, who was in the grass, was hit, and then dragged under the car, which is how he was burned.

Logan, the son of Alma and Jason Skelton, is a second grade student at Sequoyah Elementary. His classmates sent him a get well video right after the accident. Since then, several from his school have visited the hospital, Alma said, including his teacher and principal. She said Logan has even made a video for his classmates too.

Alma said he has had a lot of visitors at the hospital this week, including several of his friends. Those visits lifted his spirits.

She said Logan is appreciative for the prayers and said it gives him a smile to know people care.

Alma said his team of doctors are optimistic that Logan is doing what he needs to do to heal.

In a video he made at the hospital for his friends, Logan said talks about being hit and about his 8th birthday a couple weeks ago, then about a recent win for his football team.

Logan, who said he is getting better, ended the video with, “Thank you for praying for me.”

While Logan recovers, the alleged driver of a Lincoln who fled the scene but was later arrested remains jailed on numerous complaints. A passenger also is jailed in connection with the case. Formal charges have not yet been filed.

Police said the incident involving Logan occurred after the same driver allegedly fled from another scene involving the hit-and-run of a vehicle at Center and Independence Streets.

To show support to Logan and to help the family with medical expenses, Alma said one of the football moms, Alexandrea Daily, is taking orders for T-shirts that read “Prayers for Logan.”

Youth and adult sizes are available, with prices from $16 to $25, depending on size.

“Our football team has proven to be such a huge family for us in this time of need. They are truly amazing,” Alma said.
