City Employee Dies From Injuries After Being Struck By A Car

We received official word that our colleague, Mark Gates, died this afternoon from injuries sustained after having been struck by a speeding vehicle while collecting recyclables as part of his job. Mark was a highly respected and dedicated employee as well as a deeply faithful and caring pastor, and he will be missed by all who knew him.

Racine Mayor John Dickert reminds us to be mindful of all city workers whose jobs take them into the streets. “We all need to slow down and be aware of those with whom we share the road.”

Further details regarding the accident will be forthcoming in a press release from the Racine Police Dept.
