Marshall Tucker Band/Facebook
One of the founding members of legendary Southern Rock group, the Marshall Tucker Band, was involved in a three car accident on Father’s Day.
Doug Gray, the lead vocalist who has been with the band since its inception in 1972, and his daughter, Mariah, were driving in her Chevrolet Tahoe in Florence, South Carolina when they were hit head on by a truck.
“Well this was a Father’s Day to remember!!! My daughter Mariah and I were in an accident this morning in Florence, SC. We are OK but it could have been a lot worse!!” he wrote on the band’s Facebook page. “The white truck was t-boned by the blue SUV doing about 50 mph…and the white truck hit us head on on the passenger side. Mariah and I are OK but counting our blessings!!!”
We are so glad that Doug and Mariah are okay! He does have one request, though. To “Keep Mariah’s Tahoe in your prayers!!!!”
Doug is currently the only original member of the Marshall Tucker Band that still performs with the band today. He sang lead on most of their songs, with the exception of “Can’t You See”, which featured the late Toy Caldwell on lead vocals.
