BOSTON, Sept. 13 (UPI) -- The condition of a man involved in a car crash with New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady has worsened, the man's attorney said Monday.

Samuel Reef, a lawyer for the family of 49-year-old Rogerio Rodrigues, told The Boston Globe Rodrigues' medical status has deteriorated. "Things have taken a turn for the worse over the weekend," Reef said. "We want to see how he progresses at this point."

Police said Rodrigues was lying in the back of a van driven by his son, 21-year-old Ludgero Rodrigues, when it collided with Brady's 2009 Audi S8 Thursday.

The younger Rodrigues was issued a ticket for running a red light in Boston's Back Bay neighborhood, but maintains he had a green light when the accident happened.

Brady was shaken up by the accident, but went on to play a solid game in the Patriots' 38-24 season-opening victory over Cincinnati.

"I was excited I was able to go out there and come home and see my family right after that," the signal-caller told WEEI-AM, Boston. "I'm just fortunate I'm able to be here with my son, my wife, that's really a blessing."
