Bishop Phil Whipple sent this note late Saturday night, December 29.
“I received a phone call from Adam Will concerning his father-in-law, Rocky Layne (right). Rocky was in a 4-wheeler accident around noon today. He has had emergency surgery to remove a blood clot in his brain. He is still in critical condition. Rocky pastors West Pleasant Hill UB church in Rockbridge, Ohio, and is planting Eternal Water UB Church in Carroll, Ohio.”
Rocky, according to Adam, sustained serious injuries to his face and skull.
