Hinder, the band responsible for 2005’s cheater’s anthem Lips Of An Angel, have miraculously survived a gnarly road accident in the US.
As WKRN reports, the band were in Tennessee en route to North Carolina when their tour bus rear-ended a semi-trailer which had “slowed to a near stop”, causing a three-vehicle smash.
There were 10 people onboard the bus at the time of the accident and several suffered injuries. The driver was rushed to a nearby hospital for surgery, while bassist Mike Rodden, a crew member and two passengers suffered broken ribs.
Luckily though, everyone survived (even more amazing when you take a look at photos of mangled bus).
Hinder, who are now fronted by Marshal Dutton after Austin Winkler vacated in 2013, took to Facebook to update their fans about the incident, and make a plea for one of their “friends” who’d been missing since it happened.
The band’s bus driver, Dave, had a male Australian Shepherd service dog named Cuzco who hadn’t been seen since the prang, and the band sent out a heartfelt appeal for help to find him.
And, as proof that sometimes real life stories do have happy endings, Cuzco turned up safe and well.
Hinder are currently touring in support of newest album, When The Smoke Clears, which dropped back in May.
