BATON ROUGE - A man injured in a hit-and-run two weeks ago near LSU is recovering, but the driver responsible has not been caught.

Blake McKee was critically injured after the Alabama and LSU game when he was hit by a vehicle on Brightside Lane and Alvin Dark Ave. It had been touch and go for Mckee, until yesterday when his brother says McKee was taken off of life support and began making great progress.

"We got over some hurdles. The first thing was survival. After that it was the successful brain surgery that he had, this the third hurdle right here, he's breathing by himself," said Brad McKee.

His family has a message for the person responsible.

"Just come forward. It's the right thing to do. The wrong thing was to leave in the situation, so we would like for you to do the right thing and come forward," says McKee.

There's a $10,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of the driver who hit Mckee. If you know anything, call Baton Rouge Police.
