John Jeffers, vocalist and guitar player for Texas country-rock band Whiskey Myers was seriously injured in an ATV accident over the weekend.
Jeffers' wife, Hope Petty Jeffers, shared news of the accident on her personal Facebook page on Tuesday afternoon (October 13), two days after the accident on Sunday (October 11).
"He has a skull fracture and total hearing loss in one ear, but we were reassured by the neurosurgeon and ENT at Medical City that both will heal and he will hear again," she revealed in the post. "He is pretty banged up, with lots of stitches to his head and knee. They believe a bolt went through his skull and barely missed his carotid artery. 🥺 He is at high risk of infection due the location of his fracture so specific prayers that he stays infection free."
"We are so very thankful that he is alive and still here with us!," she continued. "Special thanks to my mama and daddy for waiting outside the ER for hours and following the ambulance to Dallas in the middle of the night 🤍 "
Jeffers and Hope got married in October of 2017. Earlier this summer the pair announced they are expecting their first child together, due in December.
Hope added, "Continued prayers that he heals up with no infection and his hearing comes back over the next few weeks before Baby Jag Wilder makes his appearance 💙✨"
