Retired theatre professor struck by car: Doing okay PDF Print
Monday, 01 October 2007 08:42

Retired performance professor Ed Pilkington was injured Friday afternoon when his bicycle was struck by a Ford Ranger.


Pilkington was riding his bicycle on Poplar Grove Road near the Shulls Mill Road intersection with Highway Patrol says he lost control and landed in the path of oncoming traffic. The driver of the truck was not faulted and was going the speed limit, troopers say. Pilkington was transported via WINGS Air Rescue helicopter to Johnson City Medical Center. His friends in the ASU Theatre Department say that while he was still in intensive care on Saturday, he was listed in serious, not critical condition. Pilkington was in good spirits, joking with friends, and is expected to move into a regular room today. Pilkington also directed esteemed outdoor drama Horn in the West. During his tenure at ASU, he helped create what became the Performance Theatre Concentration.
