LEE COUNTY, Fla.- The man who was critically injured in an accident on the new Metro extension, was released from the hospital today. David Vanaman is now recovering from his injuries at home.

Vanaman crashed his scooter at the intersection of Briarcliff Road and the Metro Parkway Extension in October.

Since the road opened, neighbors have asked for a light at that intersection.
