LEE COUNTY, Fla.- David Vanaman, the victim of Monday's Metro Park Extension crash, remains in critical condition at Lee Memorial Hospital, according to his attorney Randall Spivey. Vanaman is currently in a medically-induced coma with brain damage, skull and shoulder fractures and injuries to the entire left side of his body.
Many are calling for a light to be put in on the new extension, officially called Michael G. Rippe Parkway. Residents of the Briarcliff neighborhood have been warning of the dangers since construction began. The roadway opened Sunday and has since caused two accidents.
Vanaman is the Pastor of Cross Way Baptist Church, and is also a bus driver for the Lee County School District, according to Spivey.
"I will be looking very closely at the Maintenance of Traffic Plans, contracts between the general contractor and the State and the legal duties under the contracts, and other documents which will shed light on the matter and how this accident should have been prevented," Spivey said in a press release sent out on Thursday.
