Marty Smith Sends Message To SEC Nation Crew Involved In Serious Car Accident

Marty Smith speaking on SEC Nation.

Saturday, ESPN's Marty Smith revealed that the SEC Nation family is currently operating with heavy hearts. Smith announced that three members of the team's staff had been involved in a serious car accident in Birmingham, Alabama.

Smith's announcement came on the SEC Network on Saturday morning. He revealed that all three were injured in the crash.

"We wanted to let you guys know that we're thinking about you, we love you, and we can't wait see you back real soon."

Details regarding the accident were not released.

SEC Nation is a Saturday morning show that's broadcast from the road at SEC sites - just like College GameDay. It typically features Laura Rutledge, Tim Tebow, Marcus Spears and Paul Finebaum. Smith has been filling in for Rutledge while she's on maternity leave.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the three staffers.
