July 01, 2010 By: Aaron Category: Mike and Kelly Bowling, Prayer Requests, SG Artists, SG Industry News, SG Music, The Bowling Family

This news story states that the group was involved in a serious wreck this afternoon near Charlotte, NC. Mike Bowling and one other person have been airlifted to the local hospital, and it’s been reported that Mike is in critical condition. Terah Crabb Penhollow sustained a broken arm. There is no word on the others as of yet.

Please keep the group in your prayers. I will send updates as I receive them.

Update: Reports have come in that Mike Bowling is alert and talking. PTL!

Further update: From SGReporter:

The latest report from family members says Mike Bowling and six year old daughter, Katelanne.. appear to have sustained the most serious injuries as a result of a bus crash earlier today near Charlotte, NC. Reports say they were on the side of the bus that took the brunt of the impact,.. and were thrown forward. Family member Brian Lawing told our reporter: “Mike has a skull fracture, broken wrist, and lacerations. Kelly has a broken or crushed vertebrae and possible broken ankle. Katelanne’s collar bone is broken in two places and she has a deep laceration on her face. The piano player has a broken ankle. The rest of the family/band/crew are all okay. Shaken up and bruised but praise God they are okay.” Mike and Katelanne were airlifted to a nearby medical facility,.. the others were transported by ambulance to the same hospital. All involved are expected to make a complete recovery.

Police officers working the accident scene released a statement tonight saying: “A tractor trailer was stopped in traffic in the northbound lane of I-85 when the tour bus — also traveling north — hit the tractor trailer in the rear. The tractor trailer then hit a box truck in front of it.” The Bowling Family was enroute to a concert appearance in Indian Land, South Carolina.
