Injured Denver Bicycle Officer Moved To Rehab Facility

DENVER (CBS4)- Injured Denver Officer John Adsit has been moved to a rehabilitation facility.

Adsit, a DPD bicycle officer, was critically hurt while monitoring a student protest in December. He was run over by a car and suffered a severed artery, broken bones and had to have his spleen removed.

Adsit's family said on Friday he still has a long and challenging road ahead.
