Clemson tackle Watkins OK after car wreck

Watkins

FOREST CITY, N.C. — Clemson sophomore defensive tackle Carlos Watkins was taken to a hospital for observation after he was a passenger in a car wreck that killed another man.

The North Carolina Highway Patrol says the 19-year-old Watkins and another man were passengers in a Dodge Durango being driven by a third man.

On Saturday night, troopers say the driver lost control while making a left turn, slid off the road and into an electrical pole. The pole snapped, and live power lines fell on top of the SUV.

Troopers say 21-year-old Dache Gossett was ejected and died at the scene. Authorities said Watkins was hospitalized overnight for observation and didn't appear to have serious injuries.

The driver was not injured. Authorities are still investigating.
