BRIDGEPORT - A Bridgeport mother is grateful beyond words as her 3-year-old son starts school just six months after being struck by a car.

Corey Gordon was struck back in April on Capital Avenue as he and his mother, Erica Parmlee, got out of their car. Corey was in a coma for six weeks, but has since emerged and is trying to regain remnants of his old self.

However, Parmlee says her son has been permanently affected by the hit-and-run accident. He is unable to use his left hand and still faces challenges in other areas.

The family is still accepting donations to the Corey Gordon Recovery Fund to help pay for his medical expenses.

Meanwhile, police are offering a $1,500 reward for information leading to the arrest of the driver.
