Danielsville police officer Henry Hicks, 66, remains hospitalized in serious condition following a one-vehicle wreck on Hwy. 174 on May 30.
According to the Georgia State Patrol, Hicks was driving a 1989 Ford Bronco when it left the roadway and struck a section of wooden fence before overturning. Hicks was transported by Madison County EMS to Athens Regional Medical Center where he was reportedly admitted in critical condition.
Danielsville mayor Todd Higdon said Tuesday evening that Hicks’ condition had been upgraded to “serious but stable.”
Higdon, who said he had spoken to Hicks’ doctors that day said they felt “comfortable that he is on the road to recovery.”
Doctors were at first concerned that he might lose an arm, but Higdon said things were also looking up on that score.
“Doctors are optimistic that with surgeries, they’ll be able to save it,” Higdon noted.
Higdon said blood-thinning medications had caused excessive blood loss after the accident. “He needed 27 pints in just a couple of days,” Higdon noted.
