HONEA PATH, S.C. (WSPA) – A man was arrested and charged in a hit-and-run in Honea Path that left a child, Jayce Rainey, injured Sunday morning.

The Honea Path Police Department said the hit-and-run occurred on Sanders Street around 11:35 a.m. Jayce was airlifted to a hospital after being struck by a burgundy Buick.

As of Monday morning, police said the child was in critical but stable condition “with several procedures ahead.”

Jayce’s grandfather Douglas Rainey says this tragedy has been unimaginable for their family, and asks the community to pray for Jayce’s healing, and for justice to be served.

“Anybody that can run over a 5-year-old child and keep going does not deserve their freedom,” Rainey said.

Duphiney is being held at the Anderson County Detention Center. His bond hearing is set for 4:30 p.m. Monday.

David Nelson Duphiney was charged with hit-and-run causing great bodily injury.
