WPSD Local 6 Chief Engineer Joey Gill was severely injured in a crash this morning on U.S. 62 in McCracken County. He was taken to a Lourdes hospital and then rushed to Deaconess Hospital in Evansville, Indiana. 

We learned late Thursday night from our vice president of news and operations, who is at the hospital with his family, that doctors determined Joey has lost all brain function. 

Joey remains on life support until all family members can arrive and say their goodbyes.

We’ve lost a wonderful friend. His family has lost a wonderful husband and father.

We ask that you keep the Gill family in your thoughts and prayers tonight.
