Ballet dancer injured in hit-and-run released from hospital

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — A Rhode Island ballet dancer seriously injured in a hit-and-run has been released from the hospital.

Jordan Nelson was hospitalized for 18 days before being released Wednesday.

WJAR-TV reports that he reunited with his friends at Festival Ballet Providence and says he’s confident he will dance again.

The 28-year-old Nelson was riding his bike to meet a friend for brunch on June 25 when he was hit near Hope High School. No arrests have been made in connection with the hit-and-run, and the driver remains at large.

Providence police are asking anyone with information to contact them.
