Steven Guerrero improves, but remains in coma

After two weeks in intensive care, Colombian Formula 3 driver Steven Guerrero's condition has stabilized. The young driver no longer needs to be connected to life support equipment, and has now been moved out of the intensive care unit at Clinica del Country, a leading Colombian hospital.

"He is a fighter," said his father, Jesus Guerrero.

However, Steven still remains in coma although his condition is improving slowly.

"Each day that passes we see a more vigorous response," Dr. Burcos de la Espriella was quoted by the La FM station in Bogota. "Every day your brain is resuming more control of the body, and this is an indicator of a favorable response."

Guerrero was injured on November 14 near the town of Guamo while riding his motorcycle to a karting event where he was to be the guest of honor.
