JERSEY CITY - After 12 days in intensive care since being in a hit-and-run accident, a Jersey City man is showing his first signs of progress toward recovery.

Yasim Coe, 21, has been in intensive care at Jersey City Medial Center since June 29 when he was hit by a driver at Garfield Avenue and Wegman Parkway.

Doctors say Coe responded positively to touch by lifting his arm.

Coe suffered head trauma, a fractured pelvis, fractured arm and a collapsed lung.

The impact was so violent that a piece of the car was left behind at the scene of the incident. Police had the paint tested and are looking for a midnight blue Nissan Altima.

Anyone with any information about the hit-and-run is urged to call Jersey City authorities.
