Prayer vigil held for teen severely injured in crash

BACONTON, GA (WALB) - A community comes together Friday to pray for a young teen severely injured in a wreck.

Hannah Croker remains hospitalized two weeks after she and two other were in a serious crash in Worth County.

Friends and family of 14 year old Hannah Croker say they are praying for a speedy recovery for the young teen.

A candlelight vigil, songs and prayer is how family and friends are honoring Hannah Croker. Croker was severely injured in a Worth County Crash November 22.

"It makes me feel good to know people are thinking about her. It's overwhelming. It really is. The support she's gotten over the last two weeks. Not just her, but Angela and Mikaela as well. It's just awesome," said Virgil and LaRhonda Croker- Father and Stepmother.

People who knew Hannah and some who didn't, gathered at Baconton Baptist Church, where Hannah is a member, to pray for her healing. Her parents say her condition is improving after she was initially paralyzed from the neck down.

"She can move her left arm soon. She starting to get some feeling back, they finally got the tubes out her mouth. She's coming along," said Virgil Croker.

Hannah is now in the critical care unit of Scottish Rite Hospital in Atlanta. She has to undergo a year of rehabilitation.

"My whole theory is she's going to walk, she's coming completely out of this. This is going to be a testimony nobody is going to be about to deny," said Linda Evans, Grandmother.

Croker's older twin sisters were also praying for her healing at the vigil. They were inside the car during the crash.

"It was a little scary. I don't remember much," said Mikaela Hope.

Well wishes and donations were collected to help the family with expenses.

"And everything that anybody does can help because we're trying to keep from losing everything and be there with her too,"

The family plans to have another fundraiser in the future to raise more funds for Hannah and her family.
