The man police say was dragged along the interstate by his estranged wife has some good news.

He told NewsChannel 3 he couldn't find the couple's 4-year-old son when he was released from the hospital.

Today, he says his son is home.

Graham spoke only to NewsChannel 3 from his hospital bed Friday.

He suffered cuts, bruises and shattered bones after the hit and run.

Police say his estranged wife, Lavetta Graham, ran him down after a court appearance in Newport News last week.
