McPherson does not have health insurance, according to a friend.McPherson sustained critical injuries after jumping from the Interstate 70 overpass above South Adams Avenue in Silverthorne in the early hours of Sept. 11. Silverthorne officers attempted to stop McPherson after spotting him driving down Blue River Parkway without his Jeep’s lights on. McPherson stopped after driving up the westbound I-70 on-ramp, pulled to the side and jumped from the passenger door.”We’re not sure what happened,” said Vincent Borzileri, a close friend and co-worker of McPherson. “Only he could answer that question. But he’s doing better every day, he’s breathing on his own. His eyes are opening some, and he’s responding.”
