Share on Tumblr

Last night [August 14], Baroness were involved in a serious bus accident near Bath, England, while traveling from Bristol to Southampton on their current tour. Reports state that the band's tour bus crashed and fell 30 feet over a viaduct [photo below], injuring nine people. Of the injured, seven were transported to Royal United Hospital in Bath with minor injuries, while two — who were trapped inside the bus and rescued by firefighters — were transported to Frenchay Hospital in Bristol with more severe injuries. A Great Western Ambulance Service spokesman commented on the well-being of the injured, stating "Our staff assessed all occupants and provided any required treatment before and while en route to the hospital."

The cause of the crash is still under investigation, and, as inspector Nick Hunt, from Avon and Somerset Police stated, "at this stage it is too early to tell what the cause was." The band members and crew are recovering at local hospitals, and all tour dates have been postponed until further notice. We hope you will join us in extending your thoughts to all involved in the crash and wishing them a speedy recovery.
