The producer and the co-hosts of America’s Morning show were injured in a car accident while they were driving to New Orleans for Mardi Graz on February 27. The car the group was traveling in flipped twice and landed in water.
Chuck Wicks is still in the hospital. Ty Bentli, Kelly Ford and Glenn Johnson have been released from the hospital.
NASH FM informed fans of the accident with the following post: “We’re sorry to report to you that our NASH morning show, Ty, Kelly and Chuck, with producer Glen Johnson, were involved in a car accident last night, while traveling from an affiliate visit at WKOR-FM in Columbus, MS, to New Orleans, where they were to be Grand Marshalls in the Mardi Gras parade today. While driving through a torrential rainstorm, their car struck a puddle and hydroplaned, causing it to roll twice and end up in a ditch. They were all hospitalized in Hattiesburg, but they’ve been released, with the exception of Chuck, who was held over for some additional observation. They’re sore for the ordeal, but by all reports so far, they are fortunately going to be OK. Keep them all in your thoughts and prayers, and we’ll update you with any developments.”
