MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - A day after 19-year-old Brandon Bethea lost control of a dirt bike and crashed it through a glass window, his situation remains critical.

Bethea suffered severe head trauma while  trying to move the bike back inside the Quik Pawn Shop on Poplar Street. After revving up the engine, Bethea lost control and the bike shot forward.

Since he was just moving the motorcyle inside, Bethea didn't put on a helmet. The crash sent him through the window and his head slammed against a wall.

Medics transported him to Baptist South Medical Center. He was later transfered to UAB Hospital in Birmingham.

The Quik Pawn Shop released a statement Wednesday saying, "We are keeping our teammate and his family in our prayers during his recovery."

No one else was injured in the accident and an investigation is still underway.
