With sadness, I can confirm that Kendrick Norton was in a car accident last night and suffered multiple injuries, including the amputation of his arm. We ask that you continue to pray for him. His family also asks that the public respect Kendrick’s privacy.

This was the kind of news that nobody wanted to hear. Thoughts and prayers go out to Norton through what is definitely going to be a difficult time.
