Baroness have been involved in a horrific bus crash whilst on tour in the UK. Several mainstream media outlets reported the crash just after mid-day GMT but it later became apparent that those involved were actually the members of Baroness. The crash happened around 11:30 GMT just outside of Bristol where the band had played the night before. Nine people were on the coach with seven being treated for minor injuries and two being treated with more serious injuries at a local hospital. It was reported by the BBC that during the rescue some people had to be cut out of the vehicle. There is some confusion as to whether the bus fell over 30ft off a viaduct or went down an embankment, conditions are thought to have been treacherous due to high winds and heavy rain, whatever happened it is a serious incident. The band are due to be playing in Southampton tonight which is unlikely to go ahead. More info as it comes.
