Country Legend David Allan Coe Injured In Crash With Truck
Ocala.com ^ | 03/19/13 | Austin L. Miller

Posted on 03/22/2013 5:21:04 PM PDT by SeeSharp

Beloved country singer and self-styled outlaw David Allan Coe was injured in a serious accident involving his SUV and a Peterbilt. Despite his car being hit so hard it ended up in a nearby parking lot, he and his two passengers were taken to the hospital with only non-life threatening injuries.

Before we go attack the driver who almost deprived us of the singer of such greats as “Mona Lisa Lost Her Smile,” “The Ride,” and “You Never Even Called Me by My Name,” you should know that (yet again) it was the 4-wheeler who was at fault, not the trucker. In fact, since the truck ended up flipping, the driver and his passenger were both also injured. The driver was listed in serious condition and transferred to another nearby hospital with the possibility of undergoing surgery.

The accident occurred at around 1:30am on Tuesday, March 19th when Coe’s SUV ran a red light, and was T-boned by the semi.

His next two concert appearances – one in St. Louis, the other in Louisville – have been canceled due to his injuries.

Coe was wearing his seatbelt at the time and had to be removed from his vehicle by Ocala Fire Rescue officials. He was cited for running a red light.

Long-time friend and road manager for more than two decades, Bruce Smith, said that the outlaw country singer was “doing OK” and that his wife was with him at the hospital.

If he had been driving a Obama approved Smart car or similar I’m sure that would have been fatal as the car would turn into a hamster ball instead of just get pushed sideways.

“it was the 4-wheeler who was at fault, not the trucker”

Do you really even need to give David Allen Coe a breathalyzer to figure out what happened? I mean, come on.

Glad everyone is okay though.

Yup, but his SUV is going to take more than a little Bondo and some light buffing to straighten up :)

I was in Egan, MN in 1979 on a business trip. As I was leaving a restaurant, I noticed to my left a tractor trailor coming toward me with it’s right turn signal on. It even pulled into the right turn lane. So I started forward. Next thing I knew, the rental car I was driving had spun around like a top several times and the front end from the firewall forward was nearly gone. The truck was in the ditch.

As it turned out, the driver had dropped something between the seats and had reached over to retrieve it. He told the officer the accident was his fault. Hertz brought me a new rental car to the restaurant.

The interesting part was filling out the accident forms when I got home and back to work. The secretary asked me what make/model vehicle hit me. I said, “A 69 KW.” She was blown away when I explained a KW was a Kenworth.

This is NOT the perfect Country & Western article because it doesn't say anything about Momma or trains or trucks or prison or gettin' drunk!

Sure, but he’ll recover, the truck will have to be scrapped. From now on DAC’ll just have to be more careful when he goes out walking at night.

I always wondered exactly what he was saying. I thought it sounded like “If that ain’t country, it’ll hairlip the pope.”

“I was drunk the day my SUV got hit by a Peterbilt...”

LOL...I knew I'd see this if I scrolled down far enough!

But, I never even called him by his name.

Glad everyone's okay, prayers up.
