This might not be the venue for this type of post, but last night after the game, a young boy was struck by a vehicle on Bryant Drive. Any updates would be appreciated. Many Prayers for the Brave Father coaching his son along as he laid motionless on the road. Also, prayers lifted for the boy and the entire family!
Did you see it happen? Was it a speeding car or did the boy jump in front of them? Was it a glancing blow or a direct hit? Was it when the streets were still crowded with exiting fans?
I feel bad for the family to have something like that happen at a Bama game and late at night, likely in a town where they know none of the doctors. I am sure all were scared and likely away from friends and family.
I did not see it happen to know those details.
I spoke to a boy who witnessed it all and was in one of the vehicles that the boy hit. Traffic gets pretty backed up on Bryant Drive after the game as some of you know. There is a turn lane that runs down the middle of it around JD's store and those Tuscaloosa Trolley buses had been flying down that all night to get through traffic faster. A boy was crossing the street near JD's and was hit by one of those buses in the turn lane; the boy i spoke to estimated the trolley to have been doing 30-40, but there's no way to say if that was actually close to the speed. After being hit the boy flew about 30 feet in the air until he hit a truck stopped in traffic. He was not moving for a long time and people feared him to be dead. After about 10 or 15 minutes he moved his feet, and then once he was placed on the flat board he moved his arm to try and remove the neck brace. I hope he is okay and if anyone has an update on him that would be great.
Enjoying the process. RTR!
