Singer David Allan Coe was injured in a serious car accident in Ocala, Fla. early Tuesday morning (March 19). The entertainer was struck by a semi after reportedly running a red light.

Authorities say Coe was driving his 2011 Suburban eastbound when he ran the light shortly after 1:30AM. The semi was traveling north and broadsided Coe’s vehicle, pushing it into a parking lot.

Bruce Smith, Coe’s longtime road manager, tells the Ocala Star-Banner the singer is “doing OK.” Coe’s wife has been with him at the hospital, according to Smith. The driver of the other vehicle, Robert Johnson, 59, and his passenger, Lisa Meade, 49, were both taken to an area hospital, where Meade was treated and released. Johnson is listed in serious condition.

The 73-year-old Coe shot to fame as part of the Outlaw movement of the ’70s that also spawned Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson and Johnny Paycheck. Best known for hits like ‘You Never Even Called Me by My Name’ and ‘The Ride,’ Coe has also written hits for others, including Tanya Tucker‘s ‘Would You Lay With Me (In a Field of Stone)’ and ‘Take This Job and Shove It,’ which Paycheck made famous.

Smith says Coe has canceled two upcoming concerts in St. Louis and Louisville as a result of his injuries.
