DENVER, CO (KTRE) - A Garrison woman involved in a Colorado ATV accident which killed her son and son-in-law is in stable condition following surgery early Thursday, according to her church's Facebook page.

"Lanita Adkison got out of surgery at 2:45 this morning," the post stated. "It went well and she is stable."

The post also states Adkison's husband, Gary, was taken from a Durango, Colorado, hospital to the one in Denver so he could be with his wife.

According to the San Juan County Sheriff's Office's Facebook page, Gary Adkison was driving the vehicle in the Silverton, Colorado, area. It was having transmission problems, so he tried to coast down from Corkscrew Pass but the brakes failed before reaching County Road 110, causing it to leave the road and roll down a steep 75-foot embankment.

Christopher Ryan King, 33, of Nacogdoches, and his brother-in-law, Bryson Kyle Adkison, 26, of Nacogdoches, died at the scene.

King was the lead pastor at Holly Springs Baptist Church. The other three were also heavily involved in the church.

More than $23,000 has been raised on a GoFundMe page for the victims' families.
