NOW: Teen hurt in hit-and-run incident home after spending 81 days in the hospital

GREENFIELD, Wis. (CBS 58) -- It's been one week since 17-year-old Trevor Le-Morrison has been recovering back at home after suffering several injuries from a hit-and-run incident back in May.

The Greenfield High School senior was struck by a drunk driver near Loomis and Edgerton around 10:30 p.m. According to family, Le-Morrison was playing a game with friends outside during this time.

"It feels good to not be stuck in the hospital anymore and my bed, that's the really important part," said Le-Morrison.

Last Thursday the teen was welcomed home by family and friends. He spent 81 days in the hospital recovering from broken legs, internal bleeding, a head injury and countless other injuries.

Le-Morrison, an avid soccer player, is looking at a year-long recovery.

"I feel like a baby, like learning to walk again, but sometimes when I walk it hurts, like the outside of my knees a little bit, it feels better now," said Le-Morrison.

His mother, Oahn Le, said they are blessed he's walking and talking.

"I didn't know if he was alive or not and then now to know that he's up and walking and talking, it’s a miracle," said Le.

The 17-year-old said he's motivated to get back on the soccer field. He said the unwavering support from peers and even strangers helped him push forward.

"It shows I'm loved by a lot of people, so it felt good," said Le-Morrison.

A GoFundMe page has been set up to pay for Le-Morrison's medical expenses. The link can be found here.
