ROCHESTER HILLS, Mich. (AP) — Authorities say a suburban Detroit sheriff’s deputy has been critically injured after being struck by a car while policing a crash.
Oakland County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Mike McCabe identified the officer injured Thursday morning as 50-year-old David Hack, a 17-year veteran who’s a school liaison officer at Rochester Adams High School in Rochester Hills.
