Carman crash and recovery

Christian music maker Carman was in a serious car crash accident recently.

He was seated in the passenger seat when his driver made a left into a church parking lot, in front of a crowd of fans waiting to get into a concert. A truck from oncoming traffic struck Carman’s side at 50 MPH!

The vehicle was destroyed, but Carman was not. The driver from the oncoming truck had to be life-flighted to the closest hospital and suffered brain injuries.

Amazingly, Carman was able to walk into the church, attempting to continue with the scheduled concert, but collapsed soon after. He was taken to Liberty Hospital in Liberty, Texas, just outside of Houston. After an exam and X-rays, no broken bones or spinal injuries were discovered. There were, however, some internal injuries, requiring surgery.

Carman will be transported back home on Monday to undergo surgery Tuesday morning. Carman wishes to thank everyone for their prayers, support and thoughtful postings on Facebook. “They are very, very encouraging at a time like this,” he said.

Thanks to Stephen Yake for this information.
