ATLANTA  — The artist tapped to sculpt a Martin Luther King Jr. statue for the Georgia Capitol grounds is in critical condition after being hit by an accused drunk driver.

Georgia state police told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Andy Davis was on his motorcycle in Henry County early Saturday when he was rear-ended by a Toyota pickup truck.

The driver, 20-year-old Corey Sease, has been charged with driving under the influence.

Davis’s family issued a statement Sunday saying doctors at Atlanta’s Grady Memorial Hospital were still trying to determine whether the 53-year-old artist has any brain activity.

Gov. Nathan Deal last month announced Davis’s commissioning for the King statue. The artist’s other works include a bronze sculpture in downtown Albany depicting Ray Charles singing and playing a grand piano.
