Reports are surfacing that Baroness
have been involved in a bus crash while traveling between shows on their UK tour.
According to the BBC
, the band was on its way from Bristol to Southampton, when at 11:30 the tour bus they were on crashed and fell 30 feet off a viaduct on the A36 highway, three miles south of Bath. Two people had to be rescued by firefighters. Seven of the nine people onboard were taken to hospital in Bath with minor injuries, while two others, including the the driver, have been taken to hospital in Bristol. The cause of the accident is as of yet unknown, but it's been reported that there had been heavy rain which was too severe for an air ambulance to fly in.
"It looks like the coach has gone through the traffic lights, skidded through a fence and fallen onto the road below.
"It's a sheer drop. The coach managed to land on its wheels - but it was a mess.
"The front of it was completely caved in and there was a lot of damage to the back too.
"There were paramedics on the scene treating people with serious injuries."
Baroness has since announced that all tour dates have been postponed until further notice. I'll have more on the crash when more news surfaces.
