This weekend following a show in the New York area, Tracy Morgan's limo bus was involved in a crash with an 18-wheeler. The driver of the 18-wheeler allegedly fell asleep at the wheel after being on the road for 24 hours straight. Mr. Morgan is in critical condition, and another comedian performing with him, James McNair, has sadly passed away. Our thoughts are with everyone involved.

Baroness have released an official statement via their website (which is currently down) since the accident.
Statement from John BaizleyOn August 15th, just before 11 am, Baroness and our crew were involved in a very bad crash while on tour. The brakes in our bus failed completely, on a notoriously dangerous, incredibly steep (12% grade) hill in Monkton Combe, UK, on our way from a show Bristol to another show in Southampton. Our bus went entirely out of control, and we had no choice other than hitting a perpendicular guardrail going about 50 mph at the bottom of the hill. The guard rail and the 20 or 30 trees we ploughed through snapped like matchsticks as we went fully airborne...

Latin For Truth was recently involved in a van accident.
Message From The BandWe were driving down a steep decline in PA and the brakes went out completely. We ended up flipping the four runner and the trailer. The four runner, the trailer, and most of our equipment is totaled.

Everyone's banged up pretty badly but no one had any breaks with the exception of michael. I believe he broke some fingers.

The reason I'm posting this is because we are now stranded in wilks-barre, PA and we're trying to figure things out. We're lucky to be alive and I'm sorry to inform everyone I'm positive we will be defunct for a bit. If you would like to help us or just send us messages with kind...

Brighten was recently involved in a van accident.
Message From The Bandwhoa! holy moly... we are safe, but its quite a story. we have had over night drives for the past 3 nights and have been sleeping 7 people in a van at rest stops because we have no time to get hotels. so all in all, no sleep for brighten or a rocket to the moon (he is riding with us on tour!). this morning i, jimmy, woke up at about 7am after sleeping

Message From The BandLast night was one of the craziest nights of my life.
We had a day off and a 16 hour drive from salt lake city,ut to seattle, wa. It was a drive that we had done so many times before and we breezed through most of it with ease, even going to see a movie in the middle of the day. after dinner at subway, we entered the state of oregon around 9:15. it was a beautiful night. at approximately 9:40 we started to head up the blue mountains, we noticed that all of the trucks had stopped on the side of the road to put chains on their tires, we figured it was cuz...

Justin of VooDoo Blue has been involved in a car accident. Below is a message from the band:
MessageIt sounds like a bad dream. Friday night on the way to Dan's house to pack the van and hit the road, Justin was in a pretty bad car accident. Everything is fine, please don't freak out, he was released from shock trauma around 2am that night (it was just a precaution, he only has a concussion, and a bunch of scrapes and bruises). Justin and all of us send our love and apologies to everyone that we are going to miss out on seeing.

Madison were involved in a little bit of a car accident. Check out the message from the band below:
Madison In Car Accident, But OkayToday as we were leaving Philadelphia to go to our show in Wilmington, DE, we got into an accident and hit another car. We are all alright and so was the person in the other car. The result of the accident was a fucked up car and a bent axel on our trailer. With our trailer in too bad of condition to pull around any equipment, our friends in Twilight City Fracture drove out to help us. Since we were close to home, they brought all of our equipment there with their trailer and now we are home trying to get our trailer repaired as soon as possible so we can...

Gym Class Heroes were in a serious van accident early Thursday morning in southwestern New Mexico. They totaled their van and trailer, and most of their gear was unsalvageable. Travis, Matt, Disashi and Eric are all alright, just a little banged up. Seth was flown to a near by hospital, and got out of surgery late last night. He is in good spirits, and will hopefully be heading back to New York this weekend. A full statement from the band will be coming soon, but we just wanted to let you all know they have cancelled their shows this weekend in Arizona and California. Summer tour plans remain the same, and they look forward to seeing you all on Warped Tour.

Greeley Estates was involved in a car accident last night and rolled their trailer. As a result, their show tonight in Tempe has been cancelled.
Update From Greeley Estateslast night a semi-truck going eastbound on the I-40 just inside the new mexico/texas border had a bunch of lug nuts blow out and lost a tire. that tire rolled across the freeway, across the median and landed smack dab in the center of the right lane of the westbound I-40, which is where we hit it. it lodged under our front chassis and bent the steering column, causing us to fishtail horribly and we did a 180 on the freeway and rolled our rv and trailer in the middle of the freeway. the engine caught fire and, thank...

Scarlet recently got into a van accident, an update from the band is below:
Scarlet Accident"Hello everyone:
Yesterday, being Wednesday January 25, 2006, we were involved in a terrible van wreck. We were driving as normal as can be when all of a sudden, the rear left wheel of our van decided to take a vacation. Our van drifted violently from side to side, it scraped the middle guardrail and then shot all the way to the outside edge of the southbound highway, and then finally made a huge horseshoe movement all the way from there, to the inside edge of the northbound highway. Our vacated tire followed us in flames. We did not flip the van because our trailer was kind enough to snap off...

Below is an update from Allister regarding their recent van accident and how it will effect their upcoming dates (if at all).

Allister Says "Wear Your Seatbelts!I've been getting a bunch of emails about the crash so just to clarify things we did not crash with the fold. They slid into a ditch at some point during the night and we hit a patch of black ice after the minneapolis show and flipped our van and trailer totalling both. We are hoping to not have to cancel any shows as we are trying to get back on our feet financially asap... meaning being able to get a van and trailer to get to our upcoming scheduled dates with catch 22 on december 27-30.

PS everybody is 100% ok .....
