Scott William Hancock, 20, was charged Thursday with one felony count of serious injury by motor vehicle, according to the sheriff's office. When Hancock was arrested Monday, he was charged with failure to stop for a school bus while loading or unloading and reckless driving.
The 8-year-old boy, a student at Sue Reynolds Elementary, is in critical condition at Georgia Regents Medical Center.
The boy was trying to board a school bus in the 3800 block of Belair Road just after 7 a.m. when he was hit, deputies said. The bus was stopped on the eastbound side and had all of its caution signs activated.
Hancock, who was traveling west, passed the school bus and struck the boy, who was crossing the westbound lane to board the bus, deputies said.
Hancock is being held at the Richmond County Jail.
