While no members of the band have been seriously injured, 13 people were hurt last night when a truck rammed into the back of The Dillinger Escape Plan’s tour bus last night, according to AP. While some of the band members were hospitalized, their injuries do not appear to be serious injuries. The band was taken to the hospital for testing – according to the AP report, a pregnant woman who was traveling with the band was not hurt.
The most injured person in the accident appears to be the driver of the big rig. According to a police spokeswoman, the tour bus was parked partially on the roadway when the truck struck it from behind.
The crash happened in Poland while the band was in the midst of a European tour, billed as the band’s final before an extended, indefinite hiatus. The band was on its way to a show in Krakow when the collision occurred. The show in Krakow was cancelled but the band is scheduled to perform on Tuesday in the German city of Leipzig.
The band recently released their sixth studio album, Dissociation.
