Morrow mayoral candidate, Joseph “J.B.” Burke, said he can only remember brief, unconnected parts of a hit-and-run, automobile accident he was involved in earlier this week, as well as the moments immediately following the crash.
Morrow mayoral candidate Joseph “J.B.” Burke’s medical condition is improving, but he remains in Grady Memorial Hospital’s intensive care unit, as doctors work to treat injuries he received Sunday in a hit-and-run automobile accident, according to a family member. Burke’s niece, Angel Payne, said her uncle has a punctured lung, along with fractured ribs, and a fractured hand, and is on pain medication. She also said he is “not breathing deep” because of his injuries, and is, therefore, having to use an oxygen mask to assist him with his breathing.
