Ozark Coach, Son Killed in Florida Crash
Authorities say a high school football coach from Ozark and his 10-year-old son were killed in a central Florida crash.
The Florida Highway Patrol reports that 38-year-old Stacy Watters pulled out in front of a box truck in Orange County Thursday morning, causing the truck to hit his car.
FHP says Watters and his son, Quentin, died at the scene. Watters's 9-year-old son Jai suffered critical injuries in the collision. He was taken to an Orlando hospital, followed by family members that had been riding in another vehicle. The family had just returned from a cruise.
The Orlando Sentinel reports that Watters coached at Carroll High School in Ozark., where he was hired as a physical education teacher last spring.
The crash remains under investigation. The box truck's driver wasn't injured.
