Carla Matheson, wife of Palm Beach Atlantic University Orlando Campus adjunct professor Dr. Mark Matheson, died Friday in a head-on crash in Windermere that left Dr. Matheson severely injured.

The crash took place on Overstreet Road in Windermere. According to the Florida Highway Patrol, a van driven by a 17-year-old crossed the median and slammed into the Mathesons’ Honda. The accident remains under investigation.

Dr. Matheson, a longtime pastor in the Windermere area, has undergone surgery and is recovering at Orlando Regional Medical Center. He has taught at PBA since the bachelor's degree in ministry program was started in Orlando, said Dr. Craig Domeck, dean of the Orlando campus.

Dr. Matheson also has been a supporter of the University and has served on the School of Ministry advisory board. Carla Matheson taught composition at Valencia College.

On Monday a community-wide call to prayer was issued to students and faculty at the University’s Orlando campus. Arrangements for Carla Matheson are pending.
