‘Something in our hearts told us not to,’ his father Dezelle told MLive. ‘He is fighting for his life. We are praying for him every day.’

The incident took place about half a mile away from Mr Bramlett’s home, where he lives with his mother.

His father said he does not know why his son was leaning into the car.

Mr Bramlett played football for Jackson High School before graduating in 2016.

He was taking a year out and had planned to attend Jackson College for two years, his father said.
