The 21-year-old musician is still in critical condition after his father, Siggno vocalist and accordionist Jesse Turner, posted an update on his condition via social media on Monday.
“Jacob is still in critical condition, but we are all very hopeful,” Jesse posted on Instagram on Monday. “When I first walked into the hospital at @ 5:30 AM the doctor said, there is nothing we can do to save him, he’s not going to make it, yet he’s here today. It’s a long road to recovery, but he’s amazing isn’t he?”
Jacob was critically injured after crashing his vehicle into a guardrail at a high rate of speed in the early morning hours of February 8 in Harlingen, according to witnesses. The collision caused the vehicle to catch fire. Turner was the only person in the vehicle.
