VINEYARD, Utah (ABC4) – A week ago, Ryder Pearson, a student at Vineyard Elementary School, was riding his scooter to Lakeside Park when he was struck by a car.

Ryder, who is described as sweet, loving and goofy, reportedly suffered three brain bleeds, a skull fracture and possibly long-term side effects that remain unidentified at this time.

In an effort to alleviate some of the financial stress the Pearson family is experiencing as a result of Ryder’s medical expenses, Lindsay Christensen organized a GoFundMe in honor of Ryder.

Christensen says that Ryder’s condition is finally stable after being hospitalized at Primary Children’s for over a week, though he does not yet know when he will be able to return home or what true damage he’s endured.
