Tejano star Emilio Navaira remained in a fight for his life Monday, a day after suffering critical injuries when his tour bus crashed on a Houston highway.

“There is a chance he may not make it. You have to acknowledge that,” Dr. Alex Valadka, a neurosurgeon treating Navaira, said at a morning news conference at Houston’s Memorial Hermann Hospital.

“We’re not going day to day, we’re going hour by hour,” Valadka said.

Still, doctors said they were encouraged that swelling to Navaira’s brain had not worsened.

At a vigil Monday night in the Alamodome’s south parking lot, Navaira’s manager, Joe Casias, said the singer’s condition had not changed.
