The co-hosts of NASH morning show Ty, Kelly & Chuck—Ty Bentli, Chuck Wicks and Kelly Ford—and the show’s producer, Glenn Johnson, were involved in a serious single-car accident Monday night (Feb. 27) while traveling from Columbus, Miss., to New Orleans, where they were scheduled to be grand marshals in the Mardi Gras parade today (Feb. 28).

While driving through a downpour, the car they were traveling in hydroplaned and rolled twice before ending up in a ditch. All four passengers were hospitalized but are recovering. Kelly, Ty and Glenn have been released from the hospital with minor injuries, while Chuck is being held overnight for additional observation.

Kelly posted a photo of the wrecked car on Twitter with the caption: “We are all genuinely feeling lucky to be alive today. Thanks for your prayers, messages and texts. They mean more than you could know.”

Nash Country Daily wishes our co-workers a speedy recovery.

“We’re sorry to report to you that our NASH morning show, Ty, Kelly and Chuck, with producer Glenn 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, they are fortunately going to be OK.
Keep them all in your thoughts and prayers, and we’ll update you with any developments.”
