HOUSTON (AP) - Doctors say Grammy-winning Tejano singer Emilio Navaira may not survive a severe brain injury he suffered when his tour bus crashed Sunday on a Houston freeway.

Navaira underwent two hours of surgery and is in a medically induced coma as physicians at Memorial Hermann Hospital in the Texas Medical Center try to control swelling of his brain.

The San Antonio native was driving the bus following a performance in the Houston area when it slammed into traffic barrels where two freeways interchange before dawn Sunday. He was the most seriously hurt of seven people aboard the bus. One of those is still hospitalized.
