Brian Hickey's back at home after accident

Congrats to former City Paper managing editor Brian Hickey, who is back in his East Falls home for the first time since the Nov. 28 hit-and-run accident in Collingswood that landed him in a medically induced coma. Surgeries and therapy kept him in Cooper Medical Center and Magee Rehabilitation Hospital since.

Congrats to former City Paper managing editor Brian Hickey, who is back in his East Falls home for the first time since the Nov. 28 hit-and-run accident in Collingswood that landed him in a medically induced coma. Surgeries and therapy kept him in Cooper Medical Center and Magee Rehabilitation Hospital since.

"I wouldn't have been able to go home so quickly without the Magee therapists who pushed me harder by the day," says the longtime Philadelphia journalist, who was released from Magee Friday.

"I can't thank them enough for that, and for not letting me dwell on the unknown person who left me for dead in the street. I hope [that person has] been sleeping well at night, because I certainly wasn't for the first month after waking up from the coma." Hickey, 35, has a surgery scheduled tomorrow but will then be recuperating at home, and in very good hands, as his wife, Angela Klem, is studying to become a nurse.
