This has been a bad week for tour buses. One day after a bus carrying Hillary Scott of Lady Antebellum caught fire on a highway in Texas, a bus carrying crew members for Thompson Square was involved in a crash outside of Denver.
It happened at approximately 8:20 a.m. in heavy fog along I-70, near the E-470 interchange. The Colorado State Patrol says a bus carrying crew members for the band Twin Shadow rear-ended a tractor-trailer stopped on the interstate, seriously injuring the bus driver and eleven passengers suffered minor injuries.
Their bus then hit another truck and a tour bus carrying the crew members for Thompson Square. Both bands were headed to Denver for separate shows tonight (Friday) but were not traveling together. No one from Thompson Square’s bus or either semi were taken to the hospital.
