Des Moines police officer Lt. Joe Gonzalez suffered severe injuries on July 12 when he was pinned by a truck during an event downtown. Gonzalez was working security when the accident occurred, causing 13 broken ribs and two collapsed lungs. His condition improved greatly last week, but he then experienced internal bleeding and was re-admitted to the ICU. No other details are provided as to his current condition, but Gonzalez's brother stated that it was only a minor setback in his recovery.
