Joe Birch recovering well after car accident

(WMC-TV) – We are happy to share a good news update about our very own Joe Birch.

Action News 5's Ursula Madden paid Joe a visit to see how he is doing. She said he is doing great but still has to wear a neck brace.

Joe broke his neck in a car accident last Tuesday on Union Avenue. He did not need surgery and the doctor said there were no other tears or injuries.

He told Ursula that he is determined to be back in his anchor chair by the middle of next week.
