"Mary has had a small improvement today. The pressure in her head is leveling out. That was the doctors biggest concern before they could move forward with anything else." - Angela

Text message to the Courier from Angela Gregory, daughter-in-law

Horst Moehlmann was back at work at his Little Bakery Haus Sunday night and Monday morning, just two days after he and his wife were hit by a vehicle while crossing the street near the bakery’s downtown location.

The store near Main and Cragmont downtown closed early Friday morning after the accident with both locations remaining closed Saturday and the hilltop reopening Sunday.

According to the couple’s daughter-in-law, Angela Gregory, Horst sustained a minor wrist injury in the accident, while his wife, Mary Moehlmann, was believed to have suffered severe head trama, possibly a fractured skull.

Mary Moehlmann was flown to University of Louisville hostpital immediately after the accident, which occurred before sunrise Friday as she and her husband were crossing Main Street just west of Cragmont Street. She has remained in an unconscious, stable condition since, Gregory said in a text to the Madison Courier Monday morning.

Gregory asked the public to please keep Mary and the family in their prayers.

And, the public is doing just that if the Facebook pages for Horst’s Little Bakery Haus and The Madison Courier are any indication. As of Monday morning, Horst’s page had 485 comments with most offering prayers and good wishes, and the Courier’s Facebook page had recorded another 87.

Horst Moehlmann started the Little Bakery Haus in 2004 after working 29 years at Dieken’s Bakery in Madison.

He is a native of Germany who moved to the U.S. in 1972 and became a U.S. citizen in the fall of 2009, after being sworn in in Indianapolis.
