A Drunk Driver Slammed Into Greg Puciato’s Trailer After Attending the Vocalist’s Solo Show


Ex-Dillinger Escape Plan vocalist Greg Puciato, his bandmates, and crew were all accounted for after a drunk driver slammed into the band’s parked trailer. The incident occurred after their show in Denver, Colorado, which Puciato said was their “best show of [the] tour by far.”

Though the images posted on Puciato’s Instagram page are shocking, given the fact that the trailer was hit so hard that it flipped onto its side in the middle of the road. The fact that no one was hurt, including the drunk driver and their passenger, was extremely fortunate.

Puciato posted the following to explain the situation:

“Denver. We played our best show of tour by FAR tonight. You were our best crowd by FAR. Everything was perfect. Then we walked outside and our trailer immediately got smacked by a drunk driver at 50mph, who hit it hard enough to flip the fuck over in the middle of the street.

“You know what’s crazy? We were three hours late to load-in today. Which at the time seemed like a drag. But….if we would’ve been on time? One, or more, of us, would’ve been out there loading the trailer. And we might’ve been bowling-pinned into outer space or crushed to death by the driver dude, who was, hilariously, at the show. Life is peculiar. And you don’t know why shit happens.

“Is it all trial? Who knows. I think so. You know what I DO know though? That we WILL find a way to NOT miss the next show. At least we have a day off to figure it out. But Denver? You fucking rule. Absolutely awesome. Can’t wait to come back. Few cities on earth are as reliably awesome.

“We’ll deal with this, and come out the other side stronger. This existence is a test. Checks and balances. Best show of tour? Ready to celebrate? Nah your trailer is about to get blasted by a drunk driver. What the fuck ever. Can’t stop won’t stop. I’m glad the driver and his passenger are both still alive. Call Uber next time, hoss.”
