MIDLAND COUNTY - We have an update on the two men who were injured in the deadly accident near Highway 80 and Faudree last week.

NewsWest 9 spoke with a family member of 28-year-old Jared Tucker.

She told NewsWest 9, Tucker is currently in a drug induced coma to keep his body from moving since he's still very critical at this time.

Tucker is also expected to go back into surgery this week for his fractured spine.

45-year old Hector Pinon is slowly making progress on his condition. He's now listed in serious to fair condition.

The men were hurt after they were involved a two vehicle crash last Thursday.

Officials say a Chevy Suburban overcorrected after leaving the road and slammed into a Jeep.

The driver of the suburban died at the scene.
