Three Forks DOM recovering after motorcycle accident
    April 10 2012 by BR Staff

    Barry Nealy, director of missions for Three Forks Baptist Association in Boone who was involved in a motorcycle accident March 22, was moved from a hospital in Tennessee to a facility in Greensboro.
     
    Nealy, was riding his motorcycle March 22 when he was involved in an accident, suffered broken vertebrae in his neck, a collapsed lung and broken pelvis. He was taken to Johnson City Medical Center in Tennessee where doctors performed emergency surgery and he was placed in the Intensive Care Unit.
     
    “I really feel the strength of your prayers, so please do not stop,” said Nealy’s wife, Donna, in an update March 26.
     
    Nealy recently had a tracheostomy and was moved to Moses Cone Hospital.
     
    An update on the association’s website indicated that his breathing had improved and that Nealy was able to talk with a cap on his trach. He was also able to stand April 9 for the first time since the accident.
     
     “As you can imagine after 15 days on his back he is weak, and they will begin getting him up, and go from there,” Donna said in an update.
     
    Media reports indicate that Nealy’s motorcycle crashed into a Ford sedan in Watauga County.
     
    The Watauga Democrat reported that Trooper David Searcy of the N.C. Highway Patrol said Nealy’s motorcycle crossed the center line into the path of the car while it was traveling at about 50 mph.
     
    The report said the driver of the car suffered pain to his wrist and neck but was not transported to the hospital.
