All three have been taken to hospital to be treated for shock and cuts and bruises.
An official with Oasis management said: “Three members of Oasis were involved in a car accident Tuesday afternoon in downtown Indianapolis. A taxi they were traveling in was involved in a head on collision with another vehicle.”
The Indianapolis date for tonight (August 7) has been postponed with the date to be rescheduled.
“Keyboard player Jay has his hand strapped and has to return to hospital today for further treatment. Neither Noel nor Jay is well enough to undertake the show at the Murat Theater in Indianapolis on Wednesday evening, and have been ordered by hospital doctors to fully rest for the next 48 hours to let their prescribed medication take full effect.”
A spokesperson for the band said that the bands US Agent and the Murat’s promoter will be talking first thing Wednesday about finding a date later this year when the show can possibly be rescheduled. He said he was very relieved that none of the injuries were more serious, with most of the cuts and bruises being caused by air bags & seat belt burns.
