The son of Alabama State Schools Superintendent Eric Mackey lives in Pike Road, Alabama.

At rest, one week after the accident.

“He was really stoned,” Mackey told me, as he gave me an update on his son.

“Christopher was hit by a vehicle last Friday at a crosswalk near Lakeside Dining Hall on the University of Alabama campus.”

“Fortunately, Christopher didn’t suffer any fractures, but he flew over the car and suffered burns from the shoulder to the hip,” Mackey added.

“We don’t know when Christopher might return to school.”

A 2022 graduate of Pike Road High School, Christopher is majoring in Chemical Engineering at UA.

“He’s a great boy,” Mackey says. “But he has a severe concussion.”

Eric Mackey is a very busy guy, with his challenging job supervising our schools.

Today, he’s doing his best job of juggling and making sure Christopher is on the mend.

Christopher is handsome in the picture his dad sent me this morning.

And even though he’s hurt and sore, there’s still a very good chance Christopher will watch the Alabama-Ole Miss game on Saturday.

“Christopher will be fine,” Mackey said. “It’s just going to take time.”
