A Lancaster County teen who was critically injured in a hit-and-run last month is making significant improvements.  Ryan Sherman is reportedly moving to a rehab facility Thursday.

Sherman, 15, was skateboarding on West Main Street in New Holland two weeks ago when a car hit him and the driver took off.

Sherman’s leg was broken.  He also suffered significant head injuries and was in a coma.
