It wasn't until after this photo was taken by Rhonda Burbank that she realized the pedestrian hit by a car at the intersection of 32nd and Main at around 6:45 this evening was her grandson's father, 22 year old Dustin Fields. Dustin was taken by ambulance to Riverbend Hospital where he is currently undergoing tests and is stable. No information about the driver is available at this time. However, witnesses reported that Field's darted across traffic against the lights when he was hit. A friend reported that she had told him not to go yet when he did anyways. "He has some problems with decision making and is almost blind from a previous brain injury a little over a year ago and needs help with some tasks, such as crossing the street." Stated his son's mother, Jennifer Burbank. The family does not hold the driver of the car at fault and are praying she is coping well with the incident.
