An Oakland County, Michigan Sheriff's deputy who was struck by a vehicle in January is recovering from a serious brain injury.
Deputy David Hack was directing traffic when he was struck by a 2005 Ford Taurus driven by a 24-year-old Oakland University student on her way to class around 7:30 a.m. on Jan. 4, according to MLive.com.
The 17-year veteran of the force has been receiving treatment at Craig Hospital in Englewood, Colorado.
Hack's wife, Christine, posted an update on her husband's condition to her Facebook page:
"I wanted to give everyone an update on Dave. We are still in Colorado at Craig Hospital. Dave had the surgery to reconstruct his skull yesterday, which is called cranioplasty. The surgery went very well and Dave is recovering without complications so far. For the most part, after this surgery, Dave’s body is almost 100% healed with the exception of the pain, fatigue and physical rehabilitation required to regain function and strength. Dave continues to work very hard with his team of doctors, techs, nurses, specialists and family every day on his recovery from Traumatic Brain Injury. Please continue to keep us in your prayers!"
