A Victoria woman remains in an Odessa hospital after a Saturday wreck.
Chelsea Akin, 25, is listed in critical condition at Medical Center Hospital. Her fiance, Chad Ganaway, was treated for a broken arm and released from the hospital Tuesday.
"We still definitely need prayers," 33-year-old Ganaway said. Doctors have sedated Akin to keep her still, Ganaway said.
"We're just hoping she gets better by the day," Ganaway said.
The Victoria couple was returning from a Thanksgiving holiday with Ganaway's family in Hobbs, N.M.
They were driving on Farm-to-Market Road 11 outside Imperial shortly after 8 p.m. Saturday, according to the Department of Public Safety office in Pecos. Ganaway hit a cow in the road, he said.
Ganaway owns South Texas Elite Gymnastics and Dance in Cuero, and Akin is the dance director there.
