While travel itself can sometimes be dangerous, proof that anything can happen at any time occurred Thursday (Aug. 31) to Obituary, as their parked tour bus was struck by another vehicle, causing damage in the process.
The group were set to perform at The Garage in Glasgow, Scotland, when a vehicle struck the band’s tour bus. According to the group, the band’s merch guy was unloading some T-shirts and narrowly escaped being hit by the vehicle.
In a social media account of the incident, the band reports that no one was hurt and that luckily for them, their bus driver worked with some locals to repair the bus enough that they were able to travel to their next stop on the tour after the show.
The full account can be read below, along with a photo of the damage caused by car to their tour bus.
