TULSA, OK -- The family of a teenage boy hit by a car while riding his bike is on a crusade for justice.

Jair Taylor was released from a Tulsa hospital on Monday. Taylor was hit late Friday riding his bike to the store near his house.

It's a route his mother says he takes all the time. Jair now has a metal plate and screws in his arm. He'll get a cast Thursday but will have more rehabilitative surgeries down the road.

Mom says she doesn't know if her son will ever regain the use of his arm.

"Well, I'm not getting on a bike any time soon," Jair Taylor said. "And the rest of my summer's pretty much messed up because of this."

"It's just bad," Linda Taylor said. "I mean, he likes to draw. He likes to do things that a 13-year-old would do, but now it's just limiting."

The hit-and-run driver hasn't been caught. The Highway Patrol is looking for a burgundy Dodge Stratus. It may be missing the passenger side mirror.
