LEE COUNTY, Fla.- The man who was hit on his motorized scooter earlier this week, David Vanaman, is still fighting for his life in the hospital.

His family is now trying to make sure no one gets put in their position. They have hired a lawyer to request changes from the Florida Department of Transportation to add traffic lights at the Briarcliff and Metro Parkway intersection.

"The longer that time goes by the more people are in danger," says Vanaman's son Ben.

The family lawyer has also sent letters to the Florida Department of Transportation, Lee County and the general contractor who was hire for the project to release all documents that pertained to the metro expansion project.

"how many more need to happen for them to so , ok now we should probably put some lights in now," said Vanaman's other son, Nick.
