Ian Astbury injured in tour bus accident
The Cult are currently on tour across Europe playing shows in support of their new album, "Choice Of Weapon." The band experienced a terrifying crash just before 6:00AM local time Wednesday while in their tour bus traveling from Split, Croatia to Ljubijana, Slovenia.
"I was the only one awake," said vocalist Ian Astbury, who was seated in the bus's front lounge. "All of a sudden, the bus veered violently, hit the guard rail and tipped on a 45-degree angle, then righted itself and came to a halt. The guard rail was the only thing that prevented us from going over an 80-foot drop."
Astbury was thrown into the aisle and suffered injuries to his neck, back and shoulder. The rest of the band and crew were asleep in their bunks, so no one else was badly hurt...
