From his hospital bed, where he remains in critical but stable condition, 21-year old Pieter Lucas is not about to give up his dream of becoming a Howard County police officer.

A 2002 River Hill High School graduate, Lucas was volunteering as an auxiliary police officer Thanksgiving Eve, directing traffic around an accident at the intersection of U.S. 40 and Pebble Beach Drive. Standing in the middle of westbound U.S. 40 about 6:30 p.m., Lucas was struck by a Chevrolet Blazer. The impact threw him against his own marked sport utility vehicle, shattering his legs and leaving him motionless under the Blazer's engine.
