Injured Morrison County Deputy Brady Pundsack took to social media yesterday to give thanks to all of Central Minnesota and to those who have sent cards and well wishes after he was hit by a vehicle at Pierz Freedom Fest back in July.

I wanted to take a moment to express my heartfelt gratitude for all the kind thoughts, prayers and unwavering support that everyone has shown after my recent accident. Throughout my recovery I have received cards, donations, and many visits from people wishing me well. I’m on the road to recovery and your ongoing support continues to inspire me every day. I can’t thank you enough!
