Fury Van Crash
Mammoth Press reports: The following is a message from Jeremy Lublin of We Are The Fury

Hey everyone. Friday afternoon we were involved in a serious accident while driving through Colorado. We crashed our van around the Vail Passage area of Route 70 near Breckenridge. We were driving through a heavy snowstorm on our way home from Los Angeles when we hit ice and lost control of our vehicle and slammed into the guardrail. Surprisingly, the guardrail held and we didn't fall down the five hundred foot mountain drop, which is a miracle. As we were sliding toward the edge our trailer jackknifed and snapped off. This prevented the van from flipping and rolling over the side of the mountain, which is a damn good thing because if we had gone over the edge I definitely would not be here describing the accident to you. For the most part, we are all alright aside from being a bit shook up. [see full story for more]- Click Here for the Full Story
