Van accident- Trainwreck riders show cancelled tomorrow

Here¹s a link to the Pitchfork story.

"A drunk driver side swiped them late Saturday night in Ft. Worth, Texas. Trainwreck Riders' van flipped and rolled over multiple times. It was a hit an run, but the drunk driver was eventually caught by the police a few miles down the road from where the accident occurred. Their van is totaled. Their equipment is heavily damaged. And in terms of injuries, it seems that Garritt Heater (bass guitar) has a broken arm, Andrew Kerwin (guitar) has a broken rib, and Pete Frauenfelder (lead singer) injured his back...that's in addition to all the bruises, scrapes and scratches all over their bodies. This is all from how they describe it to us. They will be getting proper medical attention soon to determine the extent of the injuries. But somehow, they all walked away from the accident.

"It's unbelievable that somehow (as far as we can tell) there were no serious injuries to anyone in the band. They must have an angel looking over them because from the sound of how bad this accident was, it could have fatal."
