13WMAZ Anchor Frank Malloy says his 23-year-old son Nick is recovering from surgery for injuries from a single-car accident Wednesday morning.
Nick Malloy is a country singer who performs throughout the Southeast.
Frank said Nick Malloy's doctors at the Medical Center of Central Georgia were pleased with his surgery. Before Nick went in the operating room, Frank said Nick was alert. "He is talking, and it could have been a lot worse," Frank told us.
Nick Malloy was found trapped in his car after it ran off Interstate 75 northbound, slammed into an embankment near Bass Road and flipped over. According to Frank, his son may have been trapped for hours before anyone spotted Nick's car.
Lt. Sean DeFoe of the Bibb County Sheriff's Office said the cause of the accident is still under investigation.
