COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - Russell County Sheriff Heath Taylor confirms to us Agent Brad Evans had his condition upgraded to stable at the Columbus Medical Center. He has been released from the hospital and is able to walk and speak.

Evans is the Metro Narcotics drug agent from Alabama involved in Tuesday afternoon's deadly crash on Veterans Parkway.

While doctors are encouraged by his progress and expect him to make a full recovery, Evans is not out of the woods yet.

He has recently come out of a medically-induced coma that was administered for a brain injury.

"Brad is a young agent.  He's been with us for three years now," said Sheriff Taylor at a press conference Wednesday. "He was excelling in his patrol duties and we recently sent him to Metro.  He was doing an excellent job, he's eager to learn, he's a hard worker, he does excellent paperwork, and we hope that he gets back to that and has a full recovery."
