A former professional football coach was involved in a car accident on Monday, January 14 near Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. According to police reports, the man was driving a Ford Mustang around 6:15 p.m. when he collided with another car on West Third Street. One witness revealed that he saw the man in the Ford run a red light at West Third and Wyandotte just minutes before the crash. The impact from the Mustang and the other vehicle caused the second car to crash into a third automobile.
One police source seemed to indicate that the crash was not the former coach’s fault.
“It’s a blind hill to some degree,” the source said, describing the intersection. “It kind of crests at Wyandotte Street.”
However, that statement is somewhat contested. Another official report stated that the driver was “traveling at a high rate of speed,” and the coach told officers that he “tried to beat the light.”
A law enforcement official who reported to the scene allegedly gave the ex-coach a warning, not a citation. Reports indicated that no one involved in the collision was injured, and police have chosen to keep their identities private. All three cars were described as having endured moderate damage. The cause of the crash is currently under investigation.
