Kasabian have declined to comment on reports that frontman Tom Meighan knocked down his dad in a freak car accident a few weeks ago.

According to The Sun, the frontman and his father were in a car park in their hometown of Leicester when the incident happened. Meighan's dad asked him to release the handbrake on the car because he couldn't get into the vehicle. However, the singer – who doesn't have a driving license – ended up hitting him when he accidentally put his foot on the accelerator.

"It was a bizarre accident and Tom feels really bad about it," an unnamed source told the paper.

Meighan's dad reportedly spent a day in hospital after the accident, but had a lucky escape with bad bruising and a few stitches. "Tom himself felt awful about it all but thankfully his dad made a full recovery and saw the funny side," the source added.

When contacted by NME, Kasabian's spokesperson said there was no comment.

Kasabian’s latest album '48:13' entered the Official Album Chart at Number One last weekend (June 15), giving the group the fourth Number One album. Kasabian will headline the Pyramid Stage on the Sunday night at this year’s Glastonbury Festival.

The band appear on the cover of this week's NME, which is on newsstands now or available digitally.
