Cannelton Officer Hit by Vehicle Released From Hospital, Still Has "Long Recovery Ahead"


CANNELTON -- A Cannelton patrolman hit by a vehicle last week is now out of the hospital.

Reserve Patrolman Daniel Bickford was seriously hurt after being hit following the city’s Christmas Parade Friday.

The police chief tells WEHT-TV that Bickford has a “long recovery ahead,” adding he’s glad the officer is back home.

Investigators are still looking in to the accident, however, they have ruled out speed as a factor.

A Go-Fund-Me page set up for the officer has collected $460.
