The guys of Machine Head were involved in a scary bus accident and posted footage from the incident on their social media accounts.
“Everyone safe,” the band said in the post. “Narrowly missing a truck that had missed a turn off and was over-correcting into oncoming traffic.”
The post continues, “Our bus/trailer skidded in, smashed our mirror off, shattered Byron’s window,” adding that it certainly scared everyone, “but no one was hurt!!”
Check out the footage below.
Machine Head just released their latest studio album, “Catharsis.” The band is currently touring in support of the album, and their run wraps up with a March 7 show in Seattle, Washington.
SCARY BUS ACCIDENT THE OTHER NIGHT. Everyone safe. It's hard to tell from the footage, but sometime around 4AM, while driving away from our sold-out show in Albuquerque, our bus driver Bryon safely avoided what could have been a very serious accident. Driver-cam footage below doesn't clearly show that this was a blind hill and blind turn we were coming up around as a truck (that had missed it's turn off) pulled out into the (left) oncoming traffic lane of the highway to make an almost impossible exit to the right. Skidding into the truck with a full bus and trailer, it smashed our mirror off, shattered Byron's window, and scared the hell out of everyone sleeping, but thanks to his excellent driving, no one was hurt. Shout out to our driver Bryon!! #spreadthehead #machinehead
