Pieter Lucas, the 21-year-old Howard County auxiliary police officer who lost his lower left leg after being struck by a Chevrolet Blazer on Thanksgiving Eve, is recovering after surgery last week in which doctors took a piece of his hip bone and inserted it in his right leg.
"I still have a brace, but I'm able to bend my knee a little bit now," said Lucas, who is living at his family's Glenwood home. "I have gotten out of the house a few times."
