Coach, Teacher Struck in South Windsor



    Brenden McClay, of West Hartford, top, and James Warnock, of Somers, were injured when they were hit by a car on Wednesday morning.

    Two South Windsor High School physical education instructors were injured when they were struck at the entrance of the high school on Nevers Road in South Windsor at 7:58 a.m.

    Brenden McClay, of West Hartford, and Jim Warnock, of Somers, both suffered serious injuries and were taken to Hartford Hospital. McClay is the head boys' varsity basketball coach. Warnock is also a member of the physical education staff.

    McClay suffered a broken collar bone and has been released from Hartford Hospital.

    Warnock remains in serious condition.

    Police said a driver, identified as Keith Huppe, 19, was dropping off his sister and struck the two men, police said. Sun glare might have been a factor, police said. Police are investigating all contributing factors, including  the speed Huppe was driving and the locations of the pedestrians in the driveway.

    No charges have been filed in this case,

    In April, Huppe was charged with criminal trespassing in the third degree, reckless driving and operating an unregistered motor vehicle in Vernon, according to Vernon police.

    Lifestar was called but was not available, so an ambulance is transporting the people. The extent of the injuries is not yet known.
