Carrollwood Day quarterback injured in car accident

Carrollwood Day starting quarterback Spencer Peek had surgery Monday after breaking several bones in a car accident, coach Lane McLaughlin confirmed. 

Peek, a junior, was driving on the wet roads in his neighborhood Sunday, McLaughlin said, when he hydroplaned and ran off the road. McLaughlin said Peek was alert when he visited him. 

Peek was the backup quarterback for the Patriots last season, completing the only pass he attempted for 42 yards. He also had a rushing touchdown and 11 tackles on defense. Peek missed the spring game because of an injury, McLaughlin said, and was looking forward to finally taking over the starting job.

“It’s a shame,” McLaughlin said. “He’s lucky to be alive. He’ll recover, and he’ll be back. It’s just a tough thing to happen.”

Carrollwood Day will play a preseason game against Vero Beach St. Edward’s on Friday. McLaughlin said he’s not yet sure who will start at quarterback.
