Kyle Lysaght
Tough news from Atlanta: MyFoxAtlanta and EastCobbPatch are reporting that UAH sophomore forward Kyle Lysaght was critically injured in an automobile accident on Friday afternoon.

Police said Lysaght was a frontseat passenger in a gray 2007 Lexus heading southbound on Johnson Ferry shortly before 5 p.m. Friday.

As the vehicle approached the intersection of Woodlawn, it was struck by a white 2005 Toyota Tacoma pickup truck turning left onto Woodlawn from northbound Johnson Ferry.

The Lexus then collided with a utility pole in a traffic island, seriously injuring Lysaght, Pierce said.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Kyle.  I’ve been in contact with a couple of his teammates, and they have filled me in on some of his injuries.  I would term this situation very worrisome.  Out of respect for Kyle’s privacy, I believe that the best thing for all of us to do is show our concern for our him and not pass around rumors/facts about how he’s doing.  We should just all focus on a full recovery.

Get well, Kyle.

Update: Coach Kleinendorst has been told by Kyle’s father that Kyle’s “stablilized” and it “looks like the worst is behind him,” according to Budd McLaughlin at The Huntsville Times.
