West Seattle Blog has another report on the recovery status of Beacon Hill neighbor Wah Wong and his son Jason. Wah, who operates the Jade West CafÃ© in West Seattle, was seriously injured along with Jason on December 12 when the two were struck in their own front yard by a Corvette that left the road and pinned the Wongs between the front of the Corvette and their own car. Jason Wong is leaving the hospital after the amputation of his left leg, and Wah Wong has had surgery for his leg as well and is currently recovering at a skilled nursing facility. Neither will be able to return to work for some time.
The driver of the Corvette, Rodney Dean James, is in custody, charged with vehicular assault.
