Single mom struggles after son left for dead

SEATTLE - Nearly two months ago, a hit and run driver left a Seattle teenager for dead. Trevon Crease-Holden is still recovering from critical injuries, and his single mother is balancing being at his bedside with caring for her younger children.

Trevon should be enjoying the first days of his freshman year of high school. Instead, the 15-year-old's progress is measured, not in grades but in small movements.

"He's moving his arms," Quianna Holden, Trevon's mother says. "He yawns, he blinks, he turns his head."

In July, the driver of a stolen car hit Trevon as he stepped into a crosswalk on MLK Jr Way. The driver sped away, leaving Trevon critically injured.

This week Trevon finally left the hospital, and moved into a rehabilitation center. His mother takes videos of Trevon to bring home for her younger children.

Holden hasn't been able to return to work yet, and the KOMO Problem Solvers wanted to help. So, the Problem Solvers presented Holden with a $3,000 check from their fund to help her with her needs.

There is still a strain on Holden, as Trevon's outlook is still unknown, but she says she's just happy to have her son alive.

"I can actually smile and relax, and smile instead of straining," Holden says. "In the beginning it was a smile to keep from crying, but now it's a smile because I'm happy to see him doing better."
