sounds pretty nasty, hope they're okay.
Twitter has exploded with the news. Fingers crossed the serious injuries are no life threatening.
they've just been showing cricket textgate and prince philip.
I hope that the serious injuries aren't too critical.
Only saw them the other week. Spoke to them after as well, lovely chaps with nuff time for their fans. Fingers very crossed for speedy recoveries.
seems serious but no life threatening - however, multiple fractures, if it involves the musicians, that could mean not being able to play for a long time. :(
There is an amazing (and quite shocking) statement from John Baizley of Baroness here. Incredibly read:
So glad they're recovering. Could have been so, so much worse.
He writes very well. An amazing story.
Incredibly? Obviously I meant incredible.
I had a long talk with my wife about this last night, how crazy it would be to know for 2 MINUTES that you are gaining speed and have no idea how you will end up. The sheer horror of the bandmates being woken up by yelling and screaming and the confusion of all that.
She got in a head on last year that almost wiped her and my kids out and she had about .7 seconds to react and she said it felt like a slow-motion, seriously cannot imagine 2 minutes.
His description is fucking horrifying
If your brakes fail just after you crest the hill, it would take a few minutes to reach the bottom.
From the description, it sounds like they went off the edge here: http://goo.gl/maps/pCy1R
Turn that view around 180 degrees, and you'll see the length of the hill down which they'd have come.
There is a sign there on the floor that points through the wall into the abyss, that says "Diversion".
A STRANGE PORTENT!
superb writing about something that's so horrific. Get well soon Baroness!
If they had two minutes of freefall - I wonder if anyone considered just jumping out of the moving vehicle? I think I might have been tempted.
