Ford F-150 Crash Leaves Denver Pastor Dead, Major League Baseball Player Injured

| (Google+)

FordA Denver church pastor lost his life in a tragic car accident in Lincoln County, last week. His son, the driver, and major league baseball player Josh Bard both survived with minor personal injuries.

Pastor Pat McKendry, 45, of Arvada, was a husband and father of four. Josh Bard, catcher and designated hitter for the Seattle Mariners, told Fox News that he is devastated by the loss. Bard and the pastor’s son Clancy, 21, survived the accident, which occurred outside the town of Hugo, Colorado. According to friends and family, the three were headed out on a hunting trip.

Ginger Delgado, a reporter for KDVR Fox 31, brings us some details from the crash:

The Colorado State Patrol says Clancy McKendry was driving the blue Ford F-150 and was heading eastbound on Country Road T. He started to turn onto Country Road 23 when he apparently lost control on a curve.

The truck rolled several times and came to rest on its roof. Pat McKendry, who was sitting in the rear of the truck was ejected and pinned underneath the truck.

According to Delgado, the pastor was not wearing a seat belt, but his son and Bard were. Authorities report that alcohol and drugs were not factors in the accident.

Larry Stone, baseball writer for The Seattle Times, who covered this story a few days ago, notes a lack of publicity for the accident, which is surprising considering a professional athlete was involved.

My daughter and I first consulted with Dan Rosen after a very serious auto accident. Dan had several phone conferences with me, and Tracie was available whenever I called. We would recommend personal injury attorney Dan Rosen to anyone!
