Mother of Miller High School Teen Speaks Out

Posted: Updated:
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

The mother of a teenage boy who was hit by a vehicle while crossing the street near Miller High School spoke out Thursday night.

Sylvia Gomez is the mother of 15-year old Brian Bedford, continues to recover at Driscoll Children's Hospital from the injuries he suffered on Monday morning. Police actually had to perform CPR to bring the boy back to life.

Gomez wanted to thank the officers, but she also wonders how the woman who hit her son walked away without being charged.

"I was told he was badly hurt, so I was thinking he'd died off the bat," Gomez said.

She said son's right arm and leg were broken in three places. He has had surgery since Monday's accident, but will also need months of rehab.

As far as the accident, Gomez questions the driver's story that she was only driving 15 miles per hour.

"It hurts me, upsets me to see him in that much pain," Gomez said. "It upsets me because this lady got away with it. She got away with it. I don't know what else to say."

The teen was not in a crosswalk at the time of the accident, and police did not and will not charge the driver either. Police said the driver may have been blinded by the early morning sun, and did not see the young boy walk out into the street.

Bedford is still in the intensive care unit at Driscoll Children's Hospital, and is in stable condition.
