Robert Craig, youth pastor of First Baptist Church of Warren in Texas, is still fighting for his life at a local hospital and his family is praying for a miracle nearly a week since he was involved in a crash that left one dead and several injured.
“I know that without our faith in God, I don’t know how we’d get through this situation,” Craig’s wife Audrey said in an interview with ABC 12 News on Monday.
Texas Department of Public Safety reported a multiple vehicle crash on US 69 in Tyler County just north of Warren, at about 5:30 p.m. last Wednesday.
The Warren Baptist Church bus that was being driven by Craig, 38, was traveling southbound on US 69 when, according to witnesses, a passenger vehicle pulled out from a driveway in front of the bus.
In a bid to avoid colliding with the vehicle, Craig tried to maneuver around it but lost control and crashed into a tree.
Some nine people, including six children ranging in age from 9-14, were aboard the bus at the time of the crash.
James Craft Jr., 42, of Woodville, was pronounced dead at the scene while Craig and Doug Sheffield, 62, were transported to hospitals with serious injuries. The children were also treated at separate hospitals but none of them sustained life threatening injuries.
