A bicyclist that was injured in a hit-and-run accident remains in critical condition with a South Bend brain injury.
According to The South Bend Tribune, the man suffered the South Bend brain injury after a vehicle struck him in an intersection while he was on his way to the YMCA.
Initially, the man who suffered the South Bend brain injury was taken to the hospital for non life-threatening injuries. However, over time his condition has worsened, and the man has undergone surgery to relieve pressure on his brain.
The wife of the injured man said she believes her husband’s South Bend brain injury would have been worse had he not been wearing a helmet at the time of his accident.
The driver of the vehicle that hit the bicyclist has been taken into custody and will face a hearing for the Indiana auto accident.
