Frank Pastore, a Christian radio host and author of the 2010 memoir Shattered: Struck Down, But Not Destroyed, remains in a coma since a Nov. 19 motorcycle crash on a freeway in Duarte, Calif.

Pastore's wife, Gina Pastore, told the San Gabriel Valley Tribune that her husband is still hospitalized in critical condition, but her family is praying and hoping for his recovery.

"So far, it's still the same," she said. "It's stable, but serious. We're still praying and hoping that he'll recover. We're supporting each other and holding up OK."

Pastore suffered major head injuries after his motorcycle was sideswiped by a car in the carpool lane on the 210 Freeway, California Highway Patrol officials said.

A former Major League Baseball pitcher, Pastore was on his way home after broadcasting his "The Frank Pastore Show" on Glendale, Calif.-based Christian radio station KKLA when the crash occurred, family members said.

The driver of the car involved was not arrested or cited, investigators said.

In Shattered, Pastore describes how an elbow injury ended his dream of getting "rich and famous" as a Cincinnati Reds pitcher. He also shares how the incident was part of his testimony in accepting Jesus into his life.
