    Hank Williams Jr.'s daughters in wreck

    Hilary, Holly Williams badly hurt in one-car accident

    Friday, March 17, 2006; Posted: 10:10 a.m. EST (15:10 GMT)

    MEMPHIS, Tennessee (AP) -- Two daughters of Hank Williams Jr. remained hospitalized after being badly injured in a one-vehicle wreck in northern Mississippi.

    Hilary Williams, 27, underwent eight hours of emergency surgery at the Regional Medical Center on Wednesday night. She had a second operation Thursday to reconstruct her hip and repair damage to her colon, said the country singer's publicist, Kirt Webster.

    Her sister, Holly, 25, was in stable but critical condition with broken wrists, a broken leg, cuts and bruises, Webster said.

    Like their father and grandfather, country legend Hank Williams, both women are musicians. Holly Williams released her debut album in 2004.

    The sisters were on their way to a family funeral in Louisiana when Hilary lost control of her Toyota 4-Runner and it flipped over several times, said Staff Sgt. Scott Swanson, a spokesman for the Mississippi Highway Patrol. No other vehicles were involved.

    The wreck happened Wednesday afternoon on U.S. 61 just north of Dundee, Mississippi, about 45 miles south of Memphis, Tunica County sheriff's officials said.

    The sisters, who were wearing seat belts, were taken by helicopter to the hospital. Swanson said troopers are still investigating, but there is no indication that drugs or alcohol contributed to the accident. He said weather wasn't a factor.

    Hank Williams Jr., 56, has had a string of hits, including "Family Tradition" and "All My Rowdy Friends Are Coming Over Tonight."

    In 1975, he fell off a Montana mountain while hunting, suffering head injuries that required a year of recovery. Afterward, he wore a beard and sunglasses to hide the scars.

    His father, a star in the early 1950s, had hits such as "Your Cheatin' Heart" and "I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry." He died January 1, 1953, when Hank Jr. was 3.

    Q: who was the biggest douche that you have worked with?

    A: Eddie Van Halen hands down he threatened all the stage hands that if we wernt all pushed to the side when he got off stage that he would "bash our faces in"

    Now the new David-Lee-Roth-Van Halen album, “Tokyo Dome In Concert,” is available for purchase, and it’s super, super, super, super, super, super, crazy bad. - Doug Elfman

    damn I hate to hear that...I met Holly a couple of years ago and have seen her play a few shows. Good songwriter, singer and a beautiful girl to boot. I hope they recover soon.

    Wow that's too bad, but they are lucky to have survived a rollover like that.

    Here's to a safe recovery for both.
