Tillett said that he was driving at 30 miles per hour. He stated that upon seeing the man he immediately applied the brakes and turned the steering wheel to avoid hitting the person, but to no avail.
Ramos was taken to the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital for treatment with abrasions to knees and face, a cut wound to the forehead and a broken right arm.
He is reportedly in a stable condition.
