Dawson County Coach Lacey Killed in Car Accident


UPDATE FORSYTH COUNTY, Ga. – Dawson County High School Coach Jed Lacey was killed this morning and three others injured in a four-vehicle crash on Ga. 400 just south of Exit 6.

Two of those injured were teenagers who were passengers in Lacey’s Dodge Ram pickup truck. The teenagers are not identified, but have been taken to North Fulton Hospital for treatment.

The accident took place around 6:30 a.m. and the road was closed for nearly four hours.

In addition to coaching the boys’ and girls’ soccer teams, Lacey was an assistant coach on the varsity football team.

Lacey was named by fellow coaches as the Region 7-AAA Girls Coach of the Year earlier this year.

A prayer vigil will be held at the Dawson County High School football field tonight and counselors will be available at the school on Monday.
