Marcus Rutledge was hit in a designated crosswalk in Las Vegas on December 20, 2010 by the driver of a stolen vehicle who fled the scene. Marcus has died three times while hospitalized as a majority of his body was crushed upon impact. He has defied the odds and remarkably is able to speak sentences, most of the time, but still unable to move most of his body willingly. It has been a slow recovery process but each milestone has been nothing less than a miracle. Since he was hit in a crosswalk the state of Nevada is covering his medical expenses, as he remains in the hospital to this day, but crucial outside occupational therapy is not covered and would make a dramatic difference. The family is hoping to transport Marcus from Nevada to Washington to be closer to family once he is strong enough. Additional therapy could be the key to this. Marcus has four children and doctors have urged the family to visit as often as possible to aid in his recovery progress. The cost of bus fares, airline tickets, hotel and car rentals have added up. The More 4 Marcus trust fund aims to support Marcus’s recovery as best needed and will allow his family to aid in the process.
