Dallas Taylor, vocalist of Maylene and the Sons of Disaster and co-founder of Underoath, was seriously injured in an ATV accident in Florida yesterday. According to his brother, Rhett, he was airlifted to a regional trauma center:
"Thoughts and prayers for my brother, Dallas. He been airlifted to the trauma center at Shands. He was in a serious 4 wheeler accident at our house wearing no helmet and hit a sign. It doesn't look very good. I love him."
Several hours later, Rhett Taylor issued this update:
"I think hes going to be okay. He's still unconscious. They said he'll be in the hospital for quite a while. He has tons of broken stuff, lacerations, internal bleeding and head injuries though. I just spoke with my family and it looks like he'll pull through. Please don't bombard the hospital. I'm sure he'd love to see everyone but he isn't even conscious at this point."
In the interim, a Gofundme campaign has been launched to assist with Taylor's forthcoming medical expenses. UPDATE: Maylene and the Sons of Disaster issued the following update this afternoon:
"Dallas is making basic touch responses like hand squeezing and slight movement. He is not awake, but is showing signs of improvement. They have been running neurological tests and he is set to go into surgery this afternoon to repair the multiple broken bones in his arm."
