Chief Henson’s accident recovery progressing

 

 

By Roxanne Thompson

Staff Writer

Slow but sure is the order of the day for Groesbeck City Administrator and Police Chief Chris Henson as he recovers from being run over March 22 by an 18-wheel tractor-trailer while directing traffic at the intersection of Hwy. 14 and Hwy. 164.

“I’m moving forward a little slower than I had hoped,” Henson said Saturday. “There’s still progress, so I’m not complaining.”

He doesn’t recall the accident itself beyond working traffic there that day.

“I remember going out to the intersection and waving traffic; I remember waving the 18-wheeler,” he said. “What happened after that, I couldn’t tell you.”

Henson spent nearly two weeks at Baylor Scott & White Hillcrest Medical Center, in Waco, including several days of in-hospital rehabilitation.

His left ankle was broken and he sustained significant internal injuries, since the truck ran over the lower part of his body.
