New photo shows Orlando officer recovering from hit-and-run
Wife of Officer William Anderson posts picture on fundraising site
ORLANDO, Fla. – For the first time, the public is getting a look at an Orlando police officer who is recovering after being injured during a traffic stop.
Officer William Anderson's wife posted a picture on a fundraising site, showing him spending time with his 18-month-old daughter.
The picture was taken inside Anderson's room at Shands Hospital in Gainesville.
Anderson was hurt July 13 when he pulled over a car while investigating a call about shots fired on Kirkman Road.
Investigators said Anderson went around the front of the car, when a passenger in that vehicle started running. Police said at the same time, the driver, 17-year-old Edward Kelty, sped up and hit Anderson.
Kelty, along with two other teens were arrested.
Meanwhile, a fundraiser for Officer Anderson has raised more than $33,000.
