Deputy critical after mishap at accident site

January 5, 2018

 

An Oakland County Sheriff's deputy was in critical condition Thursday morning after being struck by a passing motorist while working an accident scene in front of Rochester Adams High School, the office said.

 

The deputy was identified as David Hack, 50, a 17-year veteran of the sheriff's office and assigned as a school liaison deputy at the school.

 

Oakland County Undersheriff Michael McCabe said the deputy was in front of the school on Tienken Road, east of Adams, in Rochester Hills, about 7:40 a.m. when he was struck by a 2005 Ford Taurus. He had been policing another accident which had occurred earlier at the location when he was struck outside of his patrol car.

 

The deputy was transported to Ascension Crittenton Hospital by the Rochester Hills Fire Department. He was listed in critical condition with a severe head injury in the Intensive Care Unit.

 

McCabe said the Ford was driven by a 24-year-old Oakland Township woman who was on her way to Oakland University.

 

The accident is under investigation by the sheriff's crash reconstruction unit. The results of the investigation will then be reviewed by the Oakland County Sheriff's Office.
