Nitro Patrolman Jimmy Lee knows he is lucky to be alive. He also knows he has a long road of recovery ahead.

Jimmy, 26, remembers having lunch at Cracker Barrel with Patrolman Ray Blake on Thanksgiving Day, but everything else is a blank until about Christmas Eve.

He was directing traffic around a disabled vehicle on Cross Lanes Drive about 5:30 p.m. Nov. 24 when he was struck by a Ford Escape. Jimmy, who had been on the force about one year, was thrown several yards.
