Tom Poole was hit by a car on Saturday night, after getting off of a bus near his home. Poole is a core member of the Twin Cities theater community, serving as everything from playwright and screenwriter to actor and talent agent.
Poole suffered severe brain trauma in the accident; doctors had to remove three pieces of his skull to relieve brain swelling. He is currently in the Intensive Care Unit at Regions Hospital. Based on reports from close friends it appears he is still unconscious, but his doctor believes he did respond to at least one request to move his toes.
