HARLINGEN — Tejano band Grupo Siggno member Jacob Turner, 21, is listed in stable condition and resting after being injured earlier this week in a car accident.
Because of their fellow band member’s accident, the band has elected to postpone a couple of their upcoming shows.
“Once again, we would like to thank everyone for the continuous support and prayers during this difficult time,” the band stated on their Facebook page.
“Jacob is still stable and resting at this time. Our shows scheduled for Friday Feb. 12 in Dallas and Feb. 13 in Laredo have been postponed. Please continue to keep Jacob in your prayers; we will continue to keep you posted.”
At approximately 12:25 a.m. Monday, officers were dispatched to the 3500 block of West Expressway 83 near Charlie Clark Nissan to respond to a major accident.
According to witnesses, the white Dodge Challenger that Turner was driving was traveling east on the frontage road at a high rate of speed when it lost control at a curve and struck the guardrail.
The collision caused the vehicle to catch fire.
Turner was taken to Valley Baptist Medical Center and was listed in critical condition.
Grupo Siggno released a statement later that day.
“We would like to inform everyone that Jacob is stable and resting at this time. Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers.
“At this time we would like to ask everyone to respect the privacy of the family and accept that we are not accepting visitors at this time,” the band stated.
There were no other victims.
The Harlingen Police Department says it will continue to investigate the crash.
