David Alan Coe is recovering at the Ocala Regional Medical Center after his black Chevy Suburban was broadsided by a Semi early Tuesday morning. Coe’s son, guitarist Tyler Mahan Coe has released the following statement:
“My father is heavily sedated right now. I understand he has bruises and cuts all over his body but hasn’t shown any signs of serious injuries, which is miraculous if you’ve seen the photos of his vehicle. It’s going to take some time for him to recuperate. Nobody can say how quickly he will heal. Whenever he is able, as I’m sure he will be, we will resume touring. Until then, our family and management would appreciate the privacy to handle affairs demanding immediate attention. When we know more, everyone will know.”
