The family of Utah Highway Patrol Trooper Eric Ellsworth, who was critically injured while on duty, said he is still in extremely critical condition and they aren’t giving up.

The Brigham City family expressed tremendous gratitude to the community for the support over the last week.

Ellsworth’s brother-in-law, Jason, spoke for the group saying Eric was injured doing what he loves, serving the people.

Jason said they are also praying for the teenage girl who hit Ellsworth last Friday; they know it was a tragic accident.

He encouraged others to “have trust in the Heavenly Father,” no matter what happens.
