Tampa Bay Rays players Matthew Bush and Brandon Guyer are being sued for $5 million each. The Tufano family claims that after hitting 72-year-old Anthony Tufano, who was on his motorcycle, the defendants ran. He further asserts that Bush was drunk, having a blood-alcohol content of 0.18.
Bush, who does not have a driver’s license and has two prior DUIs, was driving Guyer’s SUV when he hit the man. Tufano is still in intensive care with 10 broken ribs, a punctured lung, a broken back and other injuries. The $10 million figure is for the large medical bills the plaintiff is likely to sustain, and for pain and suffering.
