MPCHS student pinned between cars in parking lot

Oct 09, 2017

A Mt. Pleasant High School student was briefly pinned between two cars Oct. 6 in the school’s parking lot.

According to the police department’s accident report, by the time officers arrived, the car had been moved, no one was pinned and there were no life-threatening injuries.

Wayne Klopfenstein was the pinned student and suffered injuries to his leg. He was treated at the scene by personnel from the Henry County Health Center Ambulance.

Reportedly, a 2005 Kia, owned by Michael Sprague of Mt. Pleasant and operated by Kelsey Hummell of Mt. Pleasant, was backing from a parking stall.

A 2001 Chevy, owned by John Klopfenstein of Mt. Pleasant was parked next to the Kia and W. Klopfenstein was outside the vehicle.

Hummell did not see Klopfenstein as she was backing out and struck him, briefly pinning him between the front passenger-side bumper of the Kia and the rear driver-side corner of the Chevrolet. The Kia moved to release Klopfenstein and parked.

Total damage to the vehicles was estimated at $1,000.
