Three Teens Are Injured In Car Crash

Three teenagers are still in critical condition, one in a coma, after a car crash in Pike County.

Family members say the teens were on U.S. 23 Thursday night when they swerved to miss a car, their car then flipped over and caught on fire.

The family says 18-year-old Crystal Puckett and 19-year-old Gena West were thrown from the car and 18-year-old James Williamson was trapped under the car.

West is at Cabell-Huntington Hospital; Williamson and Puckett are at UK where we're told Puckett is in a coma.

Pikeville police are still investigating the crash.

    These People Are The Ones I Went To School With Every Day. Crystal Is My Best Friend & She Is A Wonderful Girl. She Goes To Church With Me & Yes The Fact That Her Seat Belt May Have Been On Didn't Matter. She's An 18 Year Old Girl Who Is Only Like 4 Feet Tall Seriously. I Love Her & I Believe Every One Has An Opinion But Just The Fact That You Assume They Are Bad People Just Hurts. I Think We Should All Pray For Her BC She May Not Make It. She Is Hardly Getting Any Brain Wave And Her Family Is Thinking About Taking Her Off Life Support. They THink They May Have Got The Blood Clot Too Late To Save Her. Now She Has Been In A DEEP Coma for A Full Week Now & I'm Really Scared! So If You Could Just Pray For Her!

    Candace, I agree that not wearing a seatbelt is a bad thing, but whats more important is the fact that these three young people need prayers right now. The last thing they or their families need is criticism. I hope all three get past their injuries and heal soon.

    I agree that prayer is the most important thing. I passed by right after the accident and saw the girls lying near the truck. I have been praying for them ever since. I didn't realize there was someone else in the truck until I read it on this site. I pray for a complete and speedy reacovery for all three of them. God Bless!!!

    I think instead of wondering the if and buts about what caused the accident etc. People should pray for the people involved and their families for strength to heal and overcome the injuries. So many people are quick to judge. At the church I attend someone has requested prayer each time. Prayers go out to the family and injured.

    I passed an accident on Rt 23 Thurday evening around 7:30 to 8:00 near Long John Silvers. The vehicle was an S-10 pickup. Is this the same accident?
