UPDATE: A second Brazos Valley Young Life leader who was injured in a crash earlier this month, has died.
Blake Rodgers, who was critically injured in a rollover crash carrying five Brazos Valley Young Life Leaders, died Saturday night from his injuries.
A post from a physician and family friend on his CaringBridge page said he died peacefully in the ICU after clinical deterioration from the progression of his injuries.
The post said he was surrounded by his family.
Longtime family friends of the Rodgers and Young Life College Director in San Antonio, Steve Millet, said Blake was a "fun, joyful, super compassionate soul who loved to dance. He was a young man who was swept up into the gospel."
Information regarding services honoring Blake are available on his CaringBridge site.
The crash happened on May 12th on I-35 outside of West, Texas. A tire on the car blew out, causing the SUV to roll over - ejecting three passengers.
Anna Wegner, 19, died on scene.
Mackenzie Davis was the third passenger who was ejected from the car. She suffered a broken pelvis, foot and wrist. An update from her mom on her GoFundMe page said screws have been put into her spine, as well as a plate in her pelvis. They are waiting to fix the broken bones.
The driver, Tanner Davis, suffered no injuries.
The fifth passenger, who was in the driver seat, Casey Wolleat, was taken in for a concussion but is recovering now.
COLLEGE STATION, Texas - A 19-year old is dead after a car wreck on Saturday afternoon.
A group of five Texas A&M Younglife Volunteers were on their way to serve at Frontier Ranch, a YoungLife camp in Colorado, when a tire on the car blew out, causing the driver to lose control and three passengers to be ejected from the car.
One passenger, Anna Wegner, was pronounced dead on scene.
The other two ejected passengers remain in the hospital, one in critical condition. GoFundMe accounts have been set up to help with any medical costs the families may be facing.
Blake Rodgers is in a coma and facing extensive medical operations. According to his GoFundMe page, Rodgers is in a "healing and inflammation" stage - a phase than can last anywhere from days to weeks. His brain has swelled, but he is responding to medication that reduces swelling.
The other passenger, Mackenzie Davis, suffered a broken pelvis, wrist and foot. She also has internal bleeding and is waiting for blood transfusions. Friends close to Davis say that she is responding to text messages saying it "means the world to her that we are all praying and loving on her."
YoungLife has issued a statement saying the YoungLife community is "deeply-saddened." And during this "difficult and anxious time," they are praying for the comfort and healing for those involved.
Wegner's visitation will be on May 16th from 6-8 p.m. Her service will be on May 17th at 5 p.m. More details can be found on the Stewart Family Funeral Home website.
