Mosca, Colo. (AP) - A newspaper editor in Colorado is recovering from serious injuries after being hit while covering a high school football game.
Sports Editor Lloyd Engen of the Valley Courier in Alamosa was hit Saturday while taking photographs on the sideline. Engen was hit by three players from Norwood and Sangre De Cristo high schools.
Engen sustained a shattered pelvis and three cracked vertebrae.
He was taken to a Denver hospital for treatment Sunday. Engen told the newspaper that it is unclear whether he'll be able to walk again. The Valley Courier is asking area high school coaches to contribute scores and highlights while Engen is recovering.
