I send my best wishes to the injured victim for as best a recovery as possible. It sounds like he received a brain injury from this crash, given his unconsciousness. It is likely that he will suffer the effects of this brain injury for many years to come.
I would recommend that the family of the victim contact a Layton personal injury attorney to find out what remedies he has available to him from the insurance company of the reckless driver as well as his own under-insured carrier.
