TUCSON, Ariz. (KOLD News 13) - The family of Pima County Administrator Chuck Huckelberry recently released new details about his condition after a bicycle crash left him seriously injured on Saturday, Oct. 23.

His wife Maureen Huckelberry said he suffered a serious head injury and broke several ribs. She said he is “stable and making slow progress.”

“We want to thank everyone who has been sharing their well-wishes about Chuck and their hopes for his speedy recovery. The outpouring of concern, love and respect for him is overwhelming and has really helped our family in this difficult time,” she was quoted as saying in a news release.

According to his family, he had been riding with friends and had done “everything right,” including wearing a helmet, gloves, a colorful jersey, no earphones and riding cautiously.
