(RENO COUNTY, Kan.) — Weeks after he was hurt in a crash, Reno County Deputy Mitch Harris is released from the hospital. Harris is now at Wesley Rehab Center. He's expected to be there for at least three weeks.
Harris was hurt in September when he turned in front of a pickup on K-96 while responding to another accident.
Two people in the pickup were also hurt, but not as seriously.
Update, September 19
Looking at the pictures, it's hard to believe anyone survived.
“I never dreamed it would be a traffic accident,” says Renee Harris.
Renee says she worries every time her husband, Mitchell, goes to work. “Of all the things to happen I was never worried about traffic. I don't know why. I was worried more about the crazy person with a gun,” says Harris.
Deputy Harris' cruiser was hit when he turned in front of a pick-up on K-96 in Reno County last Friday (see photos).
