Former Shocker baseball star Carl Hall remains in serious condition at a Wichita hospital after a weekend crash in Kingman County.

Hall's SUV rolled in the one-vehicle crash Saturday evening at K-42 and Southeast 70th Avenue, about five miles west of Norwich, Kingman County authorities reported.

Hall was flown to Via Christi Hospital on St. Francis in critical condition, but his condition has since improved.

Investigators are still exploring the cause of the crash, Kingman County Sheriff Randy Hill said.

Hall's family released a statement Monday afternoon, saying there were five other people in the car: his wife, two daughters, son and a family friend.

None of the five passengers were injured in the crash.

The Carl Hall Family Benefit Fund has been established to defray medical costs. Donations may be made in care of Intrust Bank at 105 N. Main Street; Wichita, KS 67202.

Hall was named Missouri Valley Conference player of the year for the Shockers in 1994.
