Please keep the Stacy family in your prayers

Don’t know if you all remember Siran Stacy. He was a beast at Alabama from ’89 to ’91. He was involved in a crash that took the lives of most of his immediate family.

A van driven by former University of Alabama football star Siran Stacy was struck by a pickup at an intersection and six people were killed, including Stacy’s wife and four of his children, state troopers said Tuesday.The driver of the second vehicle also was killed, said Dorris Teague, a spokeswoman for the state troopers.

Stacy, 39, a star running back for Alabama during 1989-91, was listed in stable condition in surgical intensive care at Flowers Hospital in Dothan.

Stacy, who has been employed by a mortgage company, was the first pick of the Philadelphia Eagles in the 1992 draft, but amid injury and legal problems he was cut the next year. While he never carried the ball in the NFL, he played for a few years in Canada and for minor pro leagues.

State trooper Sgt. Tracy Nelson said the pickup was on the wrong side of the four-lane road when it struck Stacy’s van on the passenger side late Monday at an intersection on U.S. 84 about six miles west of Dothan.

Houston County Coroner Robert Byrd said Stacy had stopped for a red light. “The light turned green and they proceeded to cross” the four-lane highway when hit by the other vehicle, he said.

Nelson said investigators hadn’t determined why the pickup was in the wrong lane.

“He hit them broadside, T-boned them at the intersection there,” said Houston County Coroner Robert Byrd.

“I’ve never had anything like that in my life and I’ve been doing this for 20 years,” Byrd said. “The truck that hit the car was on the passenger side and the impact was substantial.”

Stacy’s 3-year-old daughter, Shelly, was taken to Children’s Hospital in Birmingham, which did not release her condition.

Byrd identified the victims as Stacy’s wife, Ellen Stacy, 36; children Lequisa, 18, Bronson, 10, Sidney, 8, and Ellie, 2, all of Newton in southeast Alabama; and pickup driver Adam W. Wayman, 29, of Dothan.

  1. I have been keeping up with this story all day…this is so sad. This family is in my prayers.

  2. Absolutely horrific. I’ve seen far too many stories like this. But this is definitely one of the worst ones. Sad, just sad.

  3. Very sad, this man has lost his family and my prayers go out to the Stacy family.

  4. wow, I haven’t seen this mentioned anywhere else today, thanks for covering it.

    Horrible horrible news, I feel for them.

  5. GrandNubian Says:

    This is definitely a horrific situation. I can’t even begin to imagine the pain.

  6. This is horrendous. Last year, he was involved in a car crash in which two people died.

    He needs all the prayers we can muster. His daughter that survived is probably all that’s keeping him going.

  7. Siran was a thief and spousal abuser for the majority of his life. Such behavior effectively ruined his NFL career. Then he turned to God and begged forgiveness. Apparently, none was given, and that he was better off as a godless man.

    • Better off a Godless man. Are ypu crazy. U saying its ok for him to smoke dope in front of his kids and to beat his wife because he is high. U better turn to Jesus or u will die a lot whorse than that.

  8. To Darius, how can you pass judgment. Only GOD can. And Siran has turned to God as previously stated in other articles. Who are you to say that forgiveness was not given. None of us knows why things like this happen. All we do know is the GOD leaves no stones unturned. This has happened for a reason which is to be seen by Siran and his daughter and their families. Instead of pointing out someone’s faults and their past, I challenge you to get on your knees and pray for them instead of passing judgment.

  9. Tara,
