Deputy David Hack, 50, is a 17-year veteran of the sheriff’s office who was hit near Rochester Adams High School at about 7:40 a.m. on Jan. 4, by a car driven by a woman on her way to Oakland University.
According to Facebook posts by his wife, Christine Wojcik Hack, the deputy has a brain injury and multiple broken bones in his neck, upper back, shoulders, face and head. She said he opened his eyes three times on Sunday and remains in stable but critical condition.
“The days ahead will likely give us many improvements and setbacks but overall his condition is not getting worse, which is the best news we can hope for right now! It’s very good news,” one of her posts states.
Christine Hack said her husband remains unconscious but appears to respond when loved ones are at his bedside, and notes the outpouring of support the family is receiving: “We appreciate all of your prayers, positive energy, support, and offers of help…please know that we recognize every action, large or small, and love you all.” She also asks for continued prayers.
A GoFundMe page has been set up to help the family, https://www.gofundme.com/prayers-for-deputy-hack. As of Monday morning, $4,895 had been pledged.
The accident is under investigation.
