I do feel bad for the man, but more so for the driver who hit him.

It's surprising that with as many people who think they can jaywalk across High St., there aren't more incidents like this one.

My thoughts and prayers go out to the driver for having to endure the inconvenience caused by that smelly bum.

That's just rude. You should consider some introspection for what would make you say something so heinous.

THE POOR GUY THAT WAS HIT IS IN CRITICIAL CONDITION! It was an accident - they happen, probably even to you.

Man, there's some mean-hearted folks posting on this site.

Homeless or not he is at fault. Dumb ass walks in front of a car without being in a cross walk and having the correct light he is at fault..... No sympathy for the stupid

I'm wondering if this homeless man had Obamacare or if the taxpayers are picking up the tab.

The reporter was incorrect in regards to drug use. Butch befriended this man and his two brothers. This man was not a drug addict nor did he sell drugs. This reporter should have asked this man's sister.

It was true that he lived along the River; however, he and his brothers were good people. Just because someone is homeless does not make him a criminal. The reporter wanted to simply jazz up this report. The reporter should get his/her facts correct first.

We are sad to see this man injured. Many of us at White Castle coffe club would treat the brothers to coffee or castles once in a while.

I seen this first hand, and the vision of the good samaritan by-stander doing CPR on this man. I first want to say I hope you recover, my prayers are with you and your family. I also want to thank whoever I seen doing CPR on this guy, you were doing chest compressions like I have never seen. I want to know how everyone that was there is doing including the injured man.
