Pedestrian struck by car later dies of injuries

A Millville man has died of his injuries following an accident earlier this month in Vineland.

A 32-year-old Vineland man was driving a car west on Hance Bridge Road near Panther Road shortly after 11 p.m. on July 9 when he struck William K. Harris, 25, of Millville.

Police believe Harris was in the roadway for an unknown reason and said he was wearing non-reflective clothing. There is a minimal roadway shoulder of only a few inches width in that area, police noted in their report.

Harris was unresponsive when emergency responders arrived and was airlifted to a hospital for treatment.

He remained hospitalized until he died of his injuries on Tuesday, police said.

No charges have been filed against the driver, but the case remains under investigation.

Harris was walking home from work when he was struck, according to a manager at Eastlyn Golf Course and The Greenview Inn in Vineland, who created a GoFundMe drive to help with his medical bills.

Harris worked there and at the Double Eagle Saloon in Vineland, Dina Matias said in her fundraiser, which had collected more than $13,000 as of Friday afternoon.

Anyone with information about the crash is asked to contact Vineland Police Officer Agustin Santiago at 856-691-4111, ext. 4247.

MSHP reports intoxicated driver strikes trooper’s vehicle, no serious injuries reported

PURDY, Mo. (KY3) – The Missouri State Highway Patrol says an intoxicated driver struck a trooper’s vehicle Sunday morning, but no one involved in the crash was seriously hurt.

The crash happened around 7:40 a.m. Sunday on Highway 37 near Purdy, Missouri. It was first reported on Twitter by MSHP Troop D, which covers most of southwest Missouri.

One trooper was inside the vehicle at the time of the crash. MSHP says that trooper had finished up a traffic stop and went inside the patrol car shortly before it was struck.

The trooper suffered minor injuries, but has since been treated and released from a Monett hospital. MSHP did not identify the trooper whose car was struck.

The driver who struck the patrol car was driving drunk, according to MSHP Sgt. Mike McClure. That driver has been arrested for DWI and faces pending charges.

“Fortunately nobody was seriously hurt. There is absolutely no good reason to drive impaired,” said MSHP Troop D in a tweet Sunday.

MSHP is investigating the crash. Additional details are limited, but we will update as more details become available.

Wisconsin player’s father suffers serious injuries in bike accident

MADISON – The University of Wisconsin men’s basketball program, which lost two members of its extended family last May, suffered another blow this month.

Peter Hedstrom, the father of redshirt freshman center Joe Hedstrom, suffered serious injuries in a bicycle accident April 9 and remains in North Memorial Hospital in Robbinsdale, Minnesota.

According to a GoFundMe page set up for the family:

“On Sunday April 5th, 2020 Peter lost control of his bicycle and crashed on the road while riding with his wife Sharon. Peter was rushed to North Memorial hospital in an ambulance with his wife. He suffered a traumatic brain injury, cracked skull, broken collarbone, bruised lungs, three broken ribs and a fractured ear canal. It’s a miracle that he is alive; God saved his life.

“Peter spent 5 days in the Intensive Care Unit and is now on the trauma rehabilitation floor. He does not remember the accident, but we are encouraged by the progress he is making. He tells his family: ‘Keep up the good work. Trust in the Lord.’ ”

More than $4,000 had been raised by Wednesday morning. 

Joe Hedstrom, a graduate of Hopkins High School, redshirted in 2018-19 and played in six games last season before undergoing season-ending knee surgery.

The 2019-20 season was tumultuous but also rewarding for the players and coaches. Assistant coach Howard Moore suffered severe burns and lost his wife and daughter in an auto accident in Michigan on Memorial Day weekend.

The team dedicated the season to the Moore family and won its final eight games to finish 14-6 in the Big Ten to secure a share of the league title for the first time since 2015.
