Two members of metal band Baroness were injured yesterday when its tour bus fell 30 feet from a viaduct near Bath, England.
Nine people were aboard the bus. The two with multiple fractures were airlifted to local hospitals and the other seven had minor injuries. There were no fatalities and names of the injured have not been released.
The quartet has longtime ties to Savannah, although, according to the Connect Savannah website, the band moved its headquarters to Philadelphia in 2010.
Baroness, who released the new album “Yellow & Green” last month, was touring throughout England and had played in Bristol the night before the accident. The rest of the tour has been canceled. The band’s website has a brief posting that band members and crew are recovering at England-area hospitals.
