Oakland Co. deputy undergoes surgery, still critical
An Oakland County Sheriff’s deputy hit by a car Thursday while at the scene of another accident remains in critical condition, officials said Friday.
David Hack, 50, a 17-year veteran with the department, was hit by a vehicle around 7:40 a.m. on Tienken, east of Adams, in front of Rochester Adams High School where he also served as a student liaison.
“He did undergo some surgery last night. I don’t want to get too detailed of it because it’s medical information,” said Oakland County Undersheriff Michael McCabe. “He’s still in ICU, and at this point in time, I’m not the doctor but I’d call him stable.”
McCabe said the investigation into the accident that injured Hack “is not done” and he’s unsure “if there’ll be any criminal charges coming out of this” until the probe is completed.
“This could just be a tragic accident,” he said. “It was at 7:40 a.m. and it’s not real bright out at that time. There doesn’t appear to be anything negligent on the other driver’s part at this time. Until this investigation is done, we can’t say that for sure.”
McCabe said the deputy is covered by insurance. He has a wife and children, he said.
“A great guy, a great deputy and well-loved at the high school,” McCabe said.
