Andrew Tyler underwent emergency surgery Sunday night, where doctors were forced to amputate his right leg, according to his family. Doctors amputated Mr. Tyler’s left leg a few days after he was injured.
Sharon Tyler, Mr. Tyler’s daughter, says he is facing several other setbacks, including infection and pneumonia.
“The MRI showed us that he has ischemia all over so depending on the extent of the damage, he may never talk or anything again,” Sharon said.
Police are still searching for the suspect who hit Mr. Tyler. They suspect was driving maroon Buick, either a Park Avenue or LaSabre, likely with front-end damage.
