Fund Established For Stacy Family

An account has been opened to deposit funds made payable to Siran Stacy to account for expenses associated with this tragedy to the family of Siran Stacy and Ellen Bible Stacy.

Former Alabama football star Siran Stacy and his family were involved in an auto accident late Monday night near Dothan. Stacy's vehicle was struck by a pickup truck at an intersection, killing six people, including Stacy's wife and four of his children, state troopers said Tuesday. Trooper Sgt. Tracy Nelson said the driver of the pickup was on the wrong side of the road when it struck Stacy's van on the passenger side.

The account will be administered by Siran's brother, Patrick Stacy, or by Siran himself. Individuals wishing to contribute to the fund can do so by sending a donation to:
