Sheehan, 61, suffered a devastating brain injury in a three-vehicle accident on an icy road the night of April 1. He and his wife, Marcy, were westbound on Route 5 near Milestrip Road headed to their Hamburg home when their Chevy Blazer slid on black ice into a barrier. Another car slid and hit their vehicle a few minutes later.
No one was injured in the collisions. But then a third vehicle, a pickup truck sped into the same area.
A Hamburg police officer who had arrived on scene tried to stop the pickup truck by waving his flashlight. But the pickup didn’t slow down, and the patrolman had to jump out of the way to avoid being hit, according to an accident report. Sheehan has been undergoing treatment in Denver but is headed home this week for more rehabilitation.
