Steve Austin, the frontman for the band Today is the Day, was involved in a Massachusetts 15-passenger van crash over the Thanksgiving weekend. The band was getting ready to resume its tour when the group was struck by an auto that was hit by another vehicle.
On his Facebook page, Austin wrote that one of the cars hit the side of their vehicle, causing the 15-passenger van to spin some 180 degrees and then flip over. Austin says that he and a friend were thrown “super hard” in the vehicle, as glass burst everywhere, sparks flew, and transmission fluid poured in. The two of them climbed out of the van as soon as it came to a stop.
An ambulance took the men to the hospital where Trevor was treated for cuts and bruises. He claims that the drivers of the other two vehicles deny that they were at fault.
Austin isn’t the only singer recovering from a traffic crash. U2’s Bono recently underwent extensive surgery after sustaining multiple injuries in a NY bicycle crash, which has been described as a “high energy” collision.
The singer sustained a broken scapula, a facial fracture, and a compound fracture to the left humerus. Three metal plates and 18 screws were used to repair his humerus. He also fractured a finger. Bono will have to undergo intensive therapy to recover.
