PHOENIX (AP) - The father of a Kansas man injured in an alleged drunken crash in Arizona says his son is improving, but remains weak after his spine was separated from his skull.
Joel Tysver tells Fox 10 News in Phoenix that his 21 year old son, Michael, is no longer on a breathing tube and is alert and talking.
Tysver and a friend, 21 year old Cody Clark, both of Great Bend, were in Arizona for Thursday night's Fiesta Bowl in Glendale. They were riding in a pedicab early Friday when a driver suspected of being drunk crashed his car into the pedicab, ejecting Tysver and Clark.
Clark sustained a cervical spine fracture.
Scottsdale police said 27 year old Joseph Paul Spano of Phoenix was arrested on suspicion of multiple charges including drunken driving.
