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.”
