ELIZABETHTOWN, KY (WAVE) - A community is praying for a
young man who suffered life-threatening injuries in an ATV crash early Monday
morning, just eight days after his younger sister was killed by a driver who
police believe was drunk.
Hundreds of people gathered at Valley Creek Baptist
Church to pray for the recovery of Brice Taylor, 20.

a head injury around 12:30 a.m. Monday on Springfield Road at Valley Creek
Road. Taylor's family said he was in a medically-induced coma following

Friends and family members
described Brice Taylor as funny and honest, a role model to his fellow baseball
players and especially to his younger cousin.
"He taught me so much about the right things to do in life and the wrong
things," Borders explained.
During the service, there
were nothing but prayers for his recovery.
"I hope he pulls out so
bad because he's such a good person," Brice's close friend, Lucas White
said. "But I know he will. He's a fighter."
Some wondered how they still
had any tears left as they prayed for a second member of the Taylor family.
Taylor's 17-year-old sister Brianna Taylor died June 22
in a two-vehicle crash at the intersection of Patriot Parkway and Deckard
School Road in Elizabethtown, 17 days after graduating from Elizabethtown High
School. Investigators say Michael Hilton, 34, was driving drunk when he slammed
into the car Brianna was driving, killing her instantly and landing 18-year-old
Mickayla Harig in critical condition. Doctors are hopeful about Harig's
condition, but they say it remains touch and go.
