Tony Tufano, 72, the victim in the Rays minor league RHP Matt Bush DUI hit-and-run crash, was released from the hospital today and is home, daughter in law Shannon Moore said.
Tufano is using a walker and will receive home care, with family attorney Richard Hirsch saying there’s a “long road” to recovery with “hundreds of thousands” in medical bills. But Moore said the family is excited for Tufano’s return.
Bush is still in jail in Charlotte County, Florida with a $1.015 million bond. It was revealed recently that he was actually involved in three different wrecks on March 22, and he currently faces seven separate charges.
The Rays placed Bush on the restricted list on March 30. He’s doubtful to ever pitch professionally again.
