A Lebanon teenager is back home with his family after surviving a hit-and-run accident over the weekend.

Jordan D. Early, 17, of Lebanon, was injured by a hit-and-run driver at about 11:50 p.m. Saturday on Normandy Drive as he was assessing damage to his vehicle from a previous crash. The teen’s mother, Jennifer Early, said that her son sustained a concussion, a torn ACL, a scratched back and various “bumps and bruises” but was able to return home at about 9 p.m. Monday.

“He’s good,” Jennifer Early stated. “He’s still has a little bit of the effects from the concussion. With his ACL being torn, he can’t really move that leg too much. He’s on crutches... he can’t put any weight on it or anything. They think eventually he’ll probably have to have surgery.”

The Lebanon R-3 School District is currently on spring break, so Early hasn’t missed any school yet, and his mother hopes that he will be proficient enough on his crutches to go back to school next week.
