MI Tower Critically Injured

Our thoughts and prayers go to Vic Potter, owner of Bud's Towing in Marshall, MI. The 55-year old was struck on the side of the road while hooking up to a vehicle and was critically injured.
Here's the story from the Battle Creek Enquirer:
MARSHALL — Marshall Board of Education President Vic Potter was critically injured in an accident Wednesday afternoon on I-69 near N Drive North, the Calhoun County sheriff's office reported.

Potter, 55, owner of Bud's Towing of Marshall, was out of his tow truck, attempting to hook up a disabled vehicle, when a passing motorist struck him, said Sgt. Dan Latta of the Calhoun County sheriff's office.

The accident occurred shortly before 1 p.m., when roads were slickened by snowfall across the area.

Potter was taken to Oaklawn Hospital in Marshall and transferred to Bronson Methodist Hospital in Kalamazoo, Latta said.

No details about the driver and the vehicle involved in the accident were immediately available.

Potter, a Marshall native, has served on the school board since 2003. He first was elected board president in 2006.

Potter has served as chairman of the Marshall Township Planning Commission, chairman of the Marshall Township Zoning Board of Appeals, and is a member of the Marshall Exchange Club.
