MIDLOTHIAN, VA -- Nearly four months after almost being killed in a car crash while on spring break in the Cayman Islands, Harrison Zierenberg is back home.
"Everyday it gets better so I have the hope to keep going and never quit," Zierenberg said.
Zierenberg arrived to a newly remodeled home. Because he is still in a wheelchair, his bedroom is now on the first floor.
"I've come along way and there is so much I can do," Zierenberg told CBS 6. Next to his bed is a model of his skull featuring the large section that was removed as a result of the collision.
While Zierenberg still struggles to taste, smell, walk, and speak his mom said it's a miracle he is back home.
"I've been bedside with him everyday so this is a dream come true," LeeAnn Zierenberg said.
Many of Zierenberg's friends stayed with him after his arrival and watched TV in the "theater room."
"Thanks for all the support," Zierenberg said with a smile.
LeeAnn Zierenberg said the driver who allegedly hit her son while he was crossing the street has so far not been charged.
