Family calls for justice in sons' death caused by traumatic brain injury

A Bridgeport mother is calling for justice on the second anniversary of her son’s death.
Gloria Roman opened up about the devastation her family is still feeling two years after her son, 26-year-old Ricardo “Ricky” Ruiz was struck by a car while riding his bike at East Main and Stillman streets causing a traumatic brain injury.
Ricardo passed away three days later leaving behind an 8-year-old daughter who celebrated a birthday for the second time without her father.
The family is pushing for the driver, also from Bridgeport, to face involuntary manslaughter charges. They say he ran a stop sign before the crash and was never charged.
Public records show he’s been arrested on several felony charges since the tragic incident.
Despite the grief, the family wants to continue moving forward.
They say he not only remains in their hearts, as his organs were donated to both kids and adults following his death.
"He's not here with us, but he did save 5 lives,” said Roman.
March is Traumatic Brain Injury Awareness Month.
