Country legend David Allan Coe, has been hospitalized in Ocala, Florida after allegedly running a red light and being hit by a semi truck. Ocala Police Department says that the singer/songwriter was traveling in a 2011 Chevrolet Suburban around 1:30 a.m. when he approached an intersection, but for some reason failed to stop at a red light. That’s when a truck driver from California hit Coe’s vehicle.
Coe’s Suburban was sent into a parking lot while Johnson’s tractor trailer overturned. Coe, the truck driver and a passenger in the truck were all sent to local hospitals. Coe had to be removed from his car by firefighters with the Jaws of Life. Coe has initially been found at fault and was issued a ticket. All three accident victims are said to be suffering non-life-threatening injuries.
