Brookport's mayor is recovering from injuries suffered in a car wreck Friday, and the city council is moving forward with an interim mayor.
The six-member council unanimously voted to elect Tom Sounders on a temporary basis. Sounders has been on the city council for 10 years.
Current mayor John Klaffer, also a letter carrier in Massac County, was delivering mail Friday afternoon when police say he was struck by another car. Reports say he broke over half a dozen bones, but suffered no internal bleeding or brain damage. He underwent a second surgery Sunday.
