HUNTSVILLE — At least five victims of recent wrecks remained in critical condition
at Huntsville Hospital on Monday.

Motorcyclist Richard Stanley, injured in a wreck at about 9 p.m. Sunday on Dupree Hollow Road in western Limestone County, remained in the hospital's neurological intensive care unit late Monday, a hospital spokeswoman said.

His condition was critical.

Two women who suffered injuries when the sport utility vehicle in which they were riding overturned on U.S. 31 North in Decatur on Saturday morning were also being treated in NICU.

Ebony Robinson, 20, and Eronica Taylor, 20, both of Montgomery, remained in critical condition, the spokeswoman said.

Police said Kenneth Aaron, the driver of Robinson and Taylor, was also taken to Huntsville Hospital, with severe head trauma, but a hospital spokeswoman said she had no information on Aaron.

Police said Taylor was about 26 weeks pregnant. The condition of her baby remained unknown.

An SUV driver injured when his vehicle crashed into the rear of a tractor-trailer early on the on-ramp from Alabama 67 to Interstate 65 early Thursday also remained in critical condition.

Adam Keith Cobbs, 29, of Eva was being treated in the hospital's surgical intensive care unit.

The crash killed Cobbs' passenger, Kevin J. Burtis, 29, of Decatur.

Another Decatur man has been in NICU since his van overturned in the median on Alabama 20 East in Limestone County on July 26.

Tyler Blake, 25, was still listed in critical condition Monday.
