Barnes Run resident Everett "Nicky" Kerby, 18, a passenger in a friend's car, was critically injured in Nashville Friday. The Kerby youth is in a coma, suffering severe head trauma, a collapsed lung, a broken shoulder, a ruptured spleen and multiple other injuries, according to a family member.

Kerby was a 2001 graduate of Calhoun High School and was a student at Nashville Auto Diesel. He had just returned to school from the Christmas holiday.

Vanderbilt Memorial Hospital in Nashville told family members his prognosis is guarded, with recovery requiring several months.

The driver of the vehicle died instantly when the auto went across a median strip, struck an oncoming vehicle and crashed against a concrete wall.

Warren "Bud" Kerby and his wife, Kim are in Nashville. "We appreciate the calls and support from our friends, " said Kerby. "It is now in God's hands, and we appreciate all prayers."
