Hit and run victim recovering

IDAHO FALLS, Idaho (KIFI/KIDK) - 15-year old Keeton Doggett was riding his bike home from work in a crosswalk when he was hit by a white pick-up. The accident happened at the intersection of Hitt Road and First Street near the Arctic Circle, where Doggett worked.

Doggett was released from the hospital back in September and has been doing physical therapy since. Today, he finally finished. 

"My Grandma, she is my biggest supporter," Doggett said. "She helps me with cooking and she helps me with bathing and she helps me with my homework.

Doggett and his family say they are thankful for those who have helped get him to this point.

"There is so many people out there in the community who've given so much support," said Corrina Risenamy, Doggett's Grandma, said. "Can't thank them enough. The community itself is just blessed."
