DECATUR, AL (WAFF) -

A Decatur family is desperately looking for answers, after their son was hit by a car early Sunday morning.

They said the happened around 2 a.m. Sunday at the intersection of Highway 20 and Beltline Road.

23-year-old Brendan Bezdan was sent to Huntsville Hospital in serious condition, but has since been upgraded to fair condition Monday morning. His family said he spent much of Sunday in surgery.

They said he suffered severe injuries to his left leg and lost a lot of blood. His mother said he was fishing with some friends late Saturday night.

According to his friends, Bezdan hurt his ankle while walking back to the truck parked nearby, so they went ahead to get the truck.

When they came back, they found Bezdan laying by the road.  A truck driver had stopped to help him.

"He said it looked like my brother had stepped out into the road and a truck came flying around the corner and clipped the left side of his body. He was just laying in a puddle of blood," said, Summer Binder, Bezdan's sister.

The trucker told Bezdan's friends he was hit by a newer model four door white Chevy pickup truck. That is the only clue his family has so far.

"We just want to know what happened. Nobody knows what happened," said Binder.

Now they are pleading for help in finding the person responsible.

"Not only did they almost take my brother, but it could have been so much different if they had just stopped and checked on him and called 911," Binder said.

The family is urging anyone with any information about this accident, to contact local law enforcement. 

A fund has been set up at Renasant bank to help with medical expenses. You can also donate at their Facebook page.
