Tyler Priest Still Critical

Tyler Priest, 13, formerly of Archbold, was still listed in critical condition Tuesday at Parkview Hospital in Ft. Wayne, Ind., after he was run over by a tractor.

The Van Wert resident is the son of Bob Priest, former Archbold High School teacher and football coach. Priest left AHS about a year ago to become head football coach at Van Wert High School.

An Internet web log, or blog, located at tylerpriest8.blogspot. com, stated on Monday that the youngster was still in a coma, but is responding to simple commands.

A report from the Van Wert County Sheriff Department states that at about 5:35 pm, Sunday, July 6, Tyler Priest attempted to climb on a moving tractor, but slipped and fell, and was run over.
