Fundraisers Planned for Injured Security Guard

Direct donations being accepted at TCF Bank for Sue Hazzard.

The community is coming together to raise money for the 51-year-old security guard who was  during an accident in the parking lot of .

Susan Hazzard was struck by a teen driver on May 16 while directing traffic exiting school grounds. Hartland superintendent Janet Sifferman said that Hazzard's condition has been upgraded to fair and although she is still in pain due to her injuries, is doing well.

"Mr. (Chuck) Hughes and Mrs. (Alice) Lashbrooke and I believe Mrs. (Joanne) Franklin (assistant to Chuck Hughes) went to visit her yesterday and she was conscious and talking to them," Sifferman said. "Obviously in a lot of pain still and has a long way to go but she knew who they were and had good conversations."

On May 23, cookies and ice cream will be sold during the high school lunch hours with proceeds going to a fund set up at  for the Hazzard family. There will also be a "Hats Off" collection where students will pass around a hat for donations during the day.

During the morning hours of May 23, starting at 6:45 a.m., volunteers will be accepting collections from parents and community members in the parking lot of Hartland High School.

According to Livingston County Sheriff Bob Bezotte, the 16-year-old driver will be facing charges in the accident where speed and possible drug use may have been a factor. Test results are still pending.

The Hartland High School student will also receive some type of school disciplinary action, according to Sifferman, but she was unsure what the punishment would be at the time of the interview.

Any direct donations will be accepted at the TCF Bank for the Sue Hazzard Fund.
