After being hit by Hayley, Ryan was rushed to the nearby hospital where he had traumatic brain injury and multiple injuries — he reportedly remained in the ICU for a week and is now in a rehab facility.

The Police record will speak for itself, Hayley was not touching the GPS when she was driving and the allegations are coming from people who were not in the vehicle nor present at the scene at the time.
