Lakeville boy goes home

A 13-year-old boy who got hit by a car while riding his bike is finally out of the hospital after 2 months, according to the Pioneer Press. He was sent home on Wednesday. The boy, Joshua Mallari, who is an 8th-grader at Lakeville, was hit on Sept. 9 of this year. He was not thought to going to make it, according to the first responders. However, after three surgeries and being heavily sedated and unconscious for the 10 days after the accident, he made it. He will be returning to school on Monday. However he will be assisted by a special needs aid. The accident caused a traumatic brain injury that has damaged his vision and lessened the control of his left side.
