Grammy-nominated gospel singer and Brooklyn pastor Timothy Wright remains in critical condition nearly a week after a head-on crash in Pennsylvania that killed his wife and grandson. The 61-year-old Wright is in intensive care at Geisinger Medical Center in Danville, Pennsylvania.

Police say a motorist driving on the wrong side of Interstate 80 hit Wright's car on July 4. The other driver was killed.

Wright founded the Grace Tabernacle Christian Center in Brooklyn's Crown Heights neighborhood. He has released more than a dozen gospel recordings and was nominated for a Grammy award in 1994.

Wright's wife and co-pastor, Betty Wright, was 58. Their grandson D.J. was 14.
