Coming back from Cruisin' the Coast, Carter's wife was driving in a separate classic car behind him and witnessed the whole thing. Carter walked away from the accident with a minor cut on his hand.

According to Jones County Fire Coordinator Dan McKenna, the second accident involved three vehicles and the third one involved four. A total of eight vehicles were involved in accidents causing seven people transported to the hospital, in which their conditions are still unknown.
