Young trick-or-treater hit by truck out of ICU

A five-year-old Monroe boy hit by a truck while trick-or-treating is now out of the ICU.

Lashonda Brooks said Friday that her son, Graylen, is opening his eyes more but still has a long way to go.

She says he has a concussion and a traumatic brain injury.

He’ll remain in the hospital for at least the next three weeks, she says.

His 10-year-old sister was also hit. She is doing better and will be OK.
