“It’s always a tragedy when someone is injured or killed in an accident,” said Scott County Sheriff Luke Hennen.  “But the pain is particularly acute when we lose one of our young people, taking with them the loss of their future and their potential, and leaving only grief for those left behind.  We can only pray for the swift and complete recovery of those who are currently hospitalized, and for some semblance of eventual peace and consolation for the family and friends of the person who lost their life today.”
