The Birmingham News reports that Reverend Emmanuel Isi was involved in a car wreck Wednesday a few blocks from a Catholic Church.

Witnesses told police Isi was dragged from his car and then assaulted after a collision that ran one car into a cinderblock wall.

Bishop Robert J. Baker told the newspaper the 57-year-old priest underwent neck surgery and is on a respirator at UAB Hospital.

He said the priest is in danger of permanent paralysis.
