(Classic Rock) Prog-punk band Baroness and their crew were rushed to hospital yesterday after their tour bus plummeted off a viaduct near Bath in England. Nine people have been reported injured two seriously in the horror smash after the vehicle left the A36 road and fell 30 feet.

The American prog-punk band were midway through a tour of the UK. They'd played a show in Bristol and were heading to Southampton. It's thought torrential rain, which reduced visibility to almost zero, was a contributing factor. Eyewitnesses suggest the bus was moving very slowly as a precaution against the weather before it appeared to "fall off" the viaduct.

Seven of their entourage were taken to the Royal United Hospital, Bath, while two others had to be cut free from the wreckage. One of those joined his tourmates at RUH while the other went to Frenchay Hospital, Bristol. None have been released. The weather conditions meant air ambulance services were not able to assist.
