BRYANT SAID: "After working a 16 hr day I picked up my daughter & headed home. On the way home (3 miles from my house) a car crossed the center line straight into the side of my car, crushing my arm on impact. I have fractures in both bones, to the elbow & the elbow itself had to be reconstructed. By the grace ofGod, my daughter Selphie (who was in the front passenger seat) did not get harmed. It could have been much worse. The police told me the driver kept running after hitting me & struck 2 other cars before landing in a ditch (& he was drunk). My car was totalled. 

For some reason after the incident, no one could find any insurance info on the other driver although on the police report it stated he had State farm & the insurance was "valid". After 3 weeks my insurance deemed it as "unisured motorist". The week after the accident and surgery my mother had heart surgery for blockage. Having no other family, it was the wounded helping the sick. I havent been able to work since the week of Halloween & I had to request FMLA leave from my job. It was granted until mid Jan 2014 without pay. 

I tried getting unemployment but since "I requested leave" (hello?) & since I'm under Doctor's care (one of the requirements for unempolyment is to "be able to work") so.... I dont get unemployment even though I've worked a job in the state of GA since I was 14 & I'm a Veteran. Go figure?

Needless to say I'm dead broke. I'm now 5+ weeks behind on my childsupport, all my credit cards maxed & cut off now because I cant make the minimum payments, my phone is about to be cut off, couldnt afford to have Thanksgiving dinner with my daughter, needless to mention Christmas coming up."
