A 14-year-old boy who was run over by a Broward County Transit bus in May will be released from the hospital on Thursday.

Jerry Cunningham suffered a brain injury and multiple broken bones on May 10 when he was run over in Pompano Beach. He spent a month in a Broward hospital, unable to walk and talk, before he was transferred to Jackson Memorial Hospital for rehabilitation.

Cunningham will continue outpatient therapy after he is discharged. On Wednesday morning, his medical team will update his condition and prognosis.

Last month, the county suspended the driver who ran over Cunningham.
