Up to 12 people taken to hospital following multi-vehicle incident
Twin Shadow‘s tourbus has been involved in a multi-vehicle crash, with up to 12 people on board left injured.
The Denver Post reports that the crash involved multiple vehicles and occured this morning on Interstate 70 near Aurora, Colorado.
The interstate has been shut down in both directions while authorities deal with those affected by the crash, which involved two buses, two semi-tractor trailers and a motor home.
Denver Post photographer Jesse Aaron Paul is posting updates from the scene and states that the band’s crew were most seriously affected by the crash and that the band themselves were on a second bus in which nobody was taken to hospital.
Aurora Police confirmed that that rescue crews were working to remove 12 injured people from the bus and transport them to the hospital. The state patrol has blamed dense fog as being a factor in the crash. Heavy rain and snow were also falling at the time.
“Multiple victims reported, no confirmed [number],” the Aurora Fire Department said on Twitter.
Dorrelle Zahn, the mother of Twin Shadow bass player Steve Zahn, is reported to have shown a text message from her son which read: “I’ve been in an accident. I’m in pain but I am conscious. Help is here.”
Twin Shadow were due to perform at the Blue Bird Theater in Denver tonight (April 17). They performed in Lawrence, Kansas on Thursday night.
Twin Shadow released third album ‘Eclipse’ earlier this year.
