LAKE CITY, Fla. (www.incnow.tv) - A Fort Wayne man was killed Wednesday night in a crash in northern Florida.

Windy Cobb, 38, was driving the family SUV westbound on Interstate 10 through Columbia County, Fla, around 9:15 when the SUV left the roadway, according to the crash report Florida Highway Patrol.

The SUV drove through a ditch, partially overturned and hit a tree, FHP says.

Shawn Cobb, 36, Winday's husband, was a passenger and the car, and died in the crash.

Windy Cobb was flown to a Gainesville, Fla., hospital in critical condition.

The Cobbs' son, Breydon, 14, was also injured in the crash. He was taken to a Gainesville hospital in serious condition.

Windy Cobb is the program director at UNITY Performing Arts Academy.

"Tragedy has struck the UNITY Family," Marshall White, CEO & founder of UNITY, posted on the Voices of Unity Choir's Facebook page. "I'm asking all of you to please begin praying for God to spare Windy's life."

UNITY held a prayer vigil for the Cobb family Thursday night at IPFW's Rhinehart Music Center.

Additionally, a prayer vigil will be held at the Cobb's family church, St. John Evangelical Lutheran Church, 729 W. Washington Blvd., at 7 p.m. Friday.
