A 24-year-old man who was hit by a SUV while trying to get the phone number of a woman he saw on a Palm Beach street is in a coma and may never remember what happened, his stepmother told The Post.
Although the man is expected to survive, an FHP said his doctors at Delray Medical Hospital put him in a medically induced coma as his brain heals and warns he may have trouble with his memory.
“They said he’ll be in the ICU for at least four weeks and that when he wakes up he might not remember anything,” she said. “He’s got stitches in the back of his head like a ‘V,’ like this,” she said, tracing the shape of the letter with her finger along the back of her head.
Sources said the man was struck after he had just finished chatting with a woman he had met on West 18th Street in Palm Beach County. Police say the driver who hit him had a suspended license and was charged with aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle.
Police are investigating and the charges are pending for the unlicensed driver.
Accident attorney Jason Weisser of Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller and Overbeck responded to this unfortunate crash. “This is a serious accident involving a pedestrian. We hope the investigators can quickly determine what caused the accident so that the family and friends of the victim can get justice. Please be careful and obey the speed limits whenever you are driving a motorcycle, car, SUV or truck. We hope that all parties involved consult with an experienced trial lawyer. If you have been injured in an accident, call my office for a free consultation and find out what your rights are.”
