One of the children injured last weekend when Darrell Brooks allegedly barreled his SUV into the Waukesha, Wisc., Christmas parade was released from the hospital Saturday.

Children’s Wisconsin provided no other details, including the child’s identity or injuries, but said they were able to return home Saturday afternoon.

Eight children remain hospitalized there — four in serious condition, two in fair condition and two in good condition — of the 16 originally admitted last Sunday, according to hospital officials.

Six people, including 8-year-old Jackson Sparks, were killed in the crash. Virginia Sorenson, 79; LeAnna Owen, 71; Tamara Durand, 52; Jane Kulich, 52; and Wilhelm Hospel, 81, also died from their injuries.

Brooks has been charged with five counts of first-degree intentional homicide in the parade incident, and prosecutors are expected to add a sixth for Sparks, who died days later.

Police believe the deadly crash was not terrorism, but that Brooks was fleeing from a crime scene minutes earlier and inadvertently drove into and through the procession, despite not being chased.

Brooks had just been released from jail two days before the crash after paying the $1,000 bail for charges including domestic abuse. The victim, reportedly the mother of his child, claimed Brooks had punched her, then chased her to a gas station parking lot and run her over with his car. Her left pant leg had tire tracks imprinted on it.

His next court appearance is scheduled for Jan. 14.
