HELP! TRAINWRECK RIDERS HIT BY A DRUNK DRIVER IN TEXAS
I just read that the boys in THE TRAINWRECK RIDERS were hit by a drunk driver and thankfully, they are all ok. Their equipment, however, is not. This wreck forced them to cancel the rest of their tour with the BLACK DIAMOND HEAVIES, and there has been a PAYPAL account set up for those that feel like contributing to the band to replace the damaged gear so they can get back on the road again.
This is from their Web site:
For those of you who have not heard (or maybe you have, and that's why you're here), we were side-swiped by a drunk driver late Saturday night/Sunday morning (6/24). Our van was flipped and rolled. Luckily (miraculously), the van itself and our equipment took the worst of it. As far as we can tell, we did not sustain any serious injuries - various scrapes and bruises, a broken arm, maybe a rib - sticks and stones stuff mainly. We feel very lucky to have been able to walk away from this sort of accident. The drunk driver was caught a few miles down the road.
We are bummed to announced that we will likely have to cancel the rest of our US Tour with The Black Diamond Heavies. We appreciate the Heavies' understanding and support - their kind wishes, more than appreciated.
We are currently headed home to San Francisco, where we will spend some time to gather ourselves and maybe heal up a bit.
A genuine thank you to all who have taken an interest in our well-being, and rest assured, we will do our best to make it back on the road as soon as possible. If you'd like to make a donation to help out with some of the costs that we're quivering at...
