CLEVELAND -- To see the video of the hit and run accident in Public Square Sunday morning, one might question how the victim survived.
"I'm pretty sure the driver saw me directly in front of his car," said Michael Keough.
Keough was struck as he was walking across Ontario Street to catch a taxi home.
Keough says he rarely goes downtown, but was attending a bachelor party of a friend at the Horseshoe Casino.
Police say the man crossed when the oncoming traffic light was green, and an oncoming car hit him.
The driver appears to have not slowed down or stopped, as Keough lay motionless in the middle of the road. Two bystanders ran to his aide.
"I want to thank them," Keough said.
He was rushed to Metro Hospital, where the first thing he remembers from the crash, is waking up in a hospital bed.
His arm is deeply bruised, and his left leg is in a brace, requiring him to use a cane to walk.
Keough was a wrestler during his college days at John Carroll.
Yet aside from a lot of cuts and bruises, Keough says, he suffered no broken bones. He was back to work at a shipping company Wednesday afternoon.
"Looking at the video, I'm just happy I'm alive right now," he said.
Not only for his own future, but for his family. Keough is engaged to be married in August, and he and his fiancee have two young children.
Police are asking anyone who may have seen the hit and run to call the Cleveland Police Investigation Unit at (216)623-5295, or Crime Stoppers at (216)252-7463.
