A veteran Des Moines police officer sustained serious brain and internal injuries after he was hit by a pickup truck last summer after the Iowa State Fair. The officer was crossing East 30th Street and Grand Avenue when he was struck.
The man driving the pickup truck was drunk with a blood alcohol content three times over the legal limit. He is currently facing charges of driving while intoxicated, causing serious injury by vehicle, and possession of marijuana.
The injured police officer has spent months recovering in the hospital, returning home just last month. According to the police report, the officer was thrown nearly 50 feet from the point of impact.
