Former CCHS coach stable after accident

Wednesday, May 13, 2009

Grant McVay
Former Clay City High School varsity boys' basketball coach Grant McVay was injured Tuesday afternoon after a tree he was cutting down at the Turkey Run Golf Course, fell and struck him.

"All in all, it appears he is very lucky," McVay's wife Donna told The Brazil Times.

Donna told The Times Grant was initially admitted to St. Clare Medical Center, Crawfordsville, but was transferred via ambulance to Methodist Hospital, Indianapolis.

According to her, he suffered facial fractures, one reason he was transferred to Methodist, as officials wanted him to be seen by a trauma team.

In addition, Donna told The Times Grant suffered a fracture in his lower leg and a spinal fracture, although she said it was not known if surgery would be required for the spinal fracture.

She added he had suffered from bleeding on the brain. However, the condition has since gotten better and McVay is listed in stable condition.

McVay only recently resigned from his post with the Eels, whom he led to a 2009 sectional title. In his 10 seasons at Clay City, he guided the Eels to a 109-95 record.
