BARONESS OFFER NEW UPDATE ON BUS ACCIDENT
Baroness have issued a new statement regarding their bus accident in the U.K., this one giving us more specific details than yesterday’s statement regarding which members of the band and their crew were injured, and how badly they were hurt; unfortunately, it also confirms some of the worst rumors we’d heard. The statement reads as follows:
“The band members of Baroness and their crew are recovering from injuries sustained after their tour bus crashed outside of Bath, England early on Wednesday morning.
“John Baizley has broken his left arm and left leg. Allen Blickle and Matt Maggioni each suffered fractured vertebrae. All three remain in the hospital as of this writing. Pete Adams has been treated and released from the hospital.
“Three of the five crew members who were on the bus have also been treated and released. One member is still undergoing testing. The driver of the bus remains in critical condition.
“Please stay tuned for further updates. Thank you for all the support during this extremely difficult time.”
Our thoughts continue to be with the band, their crew, their driver, and their friends and family. More news as it becomes available.
