Daughter of Larry Flynt ‘holding on,’ husband says

Update @ 9 p.m.:

Dozens attended the vigil for Lisa Flynt, who for now continues on life support after her accident.

“Seems like for some reason, she’s holding on,” said her husband, Glenn Fugate.

He and other family members joined in offering prayers and songs near the spot where Flynt was critically injured. She has been in a coma since. Fugate said doctors have told him more tests are scheduled for his wife.

“She’ll give you the shirt off her back,” said a friend, Pam Jones. “She was just such a great person, a good loving person.”

Update @ 7:04 p.m.:

A vigil for Lisa Flynt is being held outside the Dollar General store where she was critically injured in a vehicle accident involving a semitrailer.

Update @ 4:08 p.m. (Oct. 22):

Lisa Flynt, who was ejected from her car and has been in critical condition since being in a two-vehicle accident Oct. 17, could be taken off life support, her husband said Wednesday.

Flynt’s family met with doctors Tuesday, and they confirmed she has had limited brain activity and her body is shutting down, her husband, Glenn Fugate, said.

The family was to meet with doctors again this afternoon before making a final decision about taking Flynt off life support, Fugate said.

He said his wife, who was taken to Miami Valley Hospital, was trapped under her car for 45 minutes after the accident.

First Report (Oct. 20):

The daughter of Hustler brand chairman Larry Flynt may have had a medical issue prior to the crash that left her in critical condition.

Lisa K. Flynt, 47, of Huber Heights, remained in the intensive care unit Monday at Miami Valley Hospital in Dayton. She was ejected from her green Oldsmobile sedan late Friday afternoon when she turned in front of a semitrailer in the 2300 block of Valley Street in Riverside.

According to a preliminary crash report by Riverside police, officers indicated Flynt did not have a valid driver’s license and was intoxicated at the time of the crash. However, police said Flynt was unable to take tests to verify her condition.

Her husband, Glenn Fugate, said Monday that Flynt had a history of seizures and doctors believe she suffered one prior to the crash.

“The doctors are verifying that she had a seizure,” he said. “You can drink 10 gallons of beer and some people can still walk, but if you have a seizure you can’t comprehend. Who can’t see a semi?”

Fugate added that the next 72 hours will be critical for is wife’s recovery and learning more about what happened to cause the crash. He said the “faith, hope and love” of family and friends during this time has been helpful. Fugate and Flynt married on Valentine’s Day and live with his two sons, he said.

Flynt is the daughter of Larry Flynt, 71, the publisher of Hustler adult magazine and chairman of an adult entertainment empire that also includes television and video services, retail stores, websites and a Los Angeles-area casino.
