Sawyer’s representative, Jenna Sims, said he is being treated for head, neck and back injuries. Sims said the family has asked for prayers in hopes of a speedy recovery.
Authorities cited Sawyer with an improper left turn.
Sawyer rose to prominence at age 8 from his viral YouTube preaching videos, Sims said. He has written three books and is a junior religion major.
In May, he was interviewed by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution about the Netflix series “Dear White People,” based on the movie of the same name, which chronicles students of color at a predominantly white school.
The four-part video series also featured students from Clark Atlanta, Emory, Georgia, Georgia Tech, Morehouse and Spelman.
