That was his second accident in two weeks and third major accident since May, when he fell and broke his hip.

On Nov. 3, he taught Sunday School at Maranatha Baptist Church in Plains.
“We are praying for him, and we believe he is going to be OK,” the Rev. Tony Lowden, Carter’s pastor at Maranatha Baptist, said Monday night. “He is one of the greatest persons I have ever known.”
In 2015, Carter beat cancer. Doctors had found four small melanoma lesions on his brain. The discovery followed the removal of a lesion on his liver that took about 10% of the organ.
