WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - A foundation has raised about $25,000 for a Wichita police officer who was hit by a fleeing driver.

The Wichita Eagle (https://bit.ly/2m3Vm7N ) reports that $10,000 already has gone to the family of Brian Arterburn. He sustained injuries to his chest, abdomen and brain when he was struck Feb. 7 while putting tire-deflating spike strips on a road. A 31-year-old man is charged.

Honore Adversis Foundation president and founder Paul Zamorano says the other $15,000 - and 100 percent of all funds received in the future - will go to the family when they need it. Zamorano says fundraising efforts have drawn “an overwhelming response” and that the $25,000 may not include all proceeds from various restaurant and business fundraisers. The foundation is an affiliate of the Wichita police union.
