Bus Crash that reportedly involves Baroness

Two people were trapped after the coach they were travelling in fell 30ft (10m) from a viaduct near Bath.

Emergency services were called to Brassknocker Hill, in Monkton Combe, on the B3108 at its junction with the A36 Warminster Road.

Avon Fire and Rescue Service said the accident happened at 11:30 BST.

An Avon and Somerset Police spokesman said the incident involved a coach which had left the road with approximately nine passengers on board.

The fire service said both of the trapped victims had now been released by firefighters.

"Those people are now being treated by ambulance staff," a spokesman said

"There were seven other passengers on board the coach, who have also been receiving medical treatment." -[BBC]

The BBC is reporting that Baroness was involved in the above crash. So far additional details are sketchy, but all on board have been accounted for. As more details arise, we'll keep you informed.

UPDATE from Baroness's label Relapse Records (via)

Baroness have been involved in a motor coach accident in the Bath area of England.
All band members and personnel on board are currently receiving medical treatment.
The band had performed in Bristol last night and were traveling to Southampton for a performance at Talking Heads this evening.
All remaining dates on the band's European tour have been canceled. Additional details to come as more information is available.
No word on how this may affect their US dates; Baroness is scheduled to play House of Vans on August 29 with Turbonegro, Doomriders and Nightbirds.

Damn. Always scary to hear anthing about a tour bus crash. Opeth and the Cult come to mind, as of lately. Hope everyone turned out (or will turn out) alright.

Hopefully everyone is OK.

Not crazy about the new album, but still can't wait to see them at FYF.

Bus Crash? Have to admit, that's pretty Metal...

9 people injured. 2 with serious injuries. 7 with minor injuries. I've heard from an inside source that at least one Baroness member has multiple fractures (broken leg/arm). I suspect if this is true they will NOT be playing any shows anytime soon. Especially not this month. Terribly worried about those boys.

Here here. I concur, they totally deserve whatever bad shit they've got coming to them. Fucking cunt pig Americans. Stay home, even Europe's weather wants you dead.

"It's CALLED KARMA."

That statement can also be applied to people who post cruel, insensitive shit like 4:35.

4:35 is mad at America cuz his small dick country ain't got shit.

Posted by Anonymous | August 15, 2012 6:37 PM

4:35 is clearly an amateur troll, and clearly an American as well. And, as a scumbag who happens to be American he knows that he is free to say hurtful, ignorant and self damaging things just like anyone else.

4:35 is probably from France... Which has the smallest dick of all European countries.

Posted by Anonymous | August 15, 2012 7:48 PM

While it is true that the French do have laughably small dicks, I would sooner believe that 7:48 is himself 4:35 performing predictable amateur troll role shifting.

4:24- "My Name is Earl"? As in a show in which actors, in their roles, pretend to be a lower class than they are? Sounds more like a hipster thing to me, tourist.

Only in a tabloid or Brooklyn V. comments section can kids turn a near death experience for many people in a bus accident into some asinine grade school fight.

good to hear no one was severely injured....but i have to wonder why only 9 people were on a bus? i've toured in vans with 9 people AND full gear. i hope the driver is fired.

1:10: ANY sense of deceny goes out the window, whenever it has to do with a *gasp*... metal band! This is how seriously the hipsters take their "my music and image is better than yours". Funny how they think they're above other people, yet they hardly ever have a sense of humanity. Shame.

How could anyone mistake the run of the mill sausage whining of 10:04 for the work of the twisted queer known as buckeye shrimper?

"run of the mill sausage whining"


Is that what hipsters who enjoy misfortunes of others call that? Oh, your little deluded world.

^moar run of the mill sausage whining. Go put a Band-Aid on your pussy and keep it moving kid.

Posted by Anonymous | August 16, 2012 12:03 PM

I usually side against the sausages, but this assclown being a dick about Baroness' misfortune is embarrassing even me. Nice job, Skippy - your lack of grace makes us all look like children. Nice job.
