(hennemusic) A Guns N' Roses fan died and dozen of others were injured in a bus crash taking fans to see the group perform on Wednesday at their second of two concerts in Mexico City.

Excelsior reports 35-year-old Mauricio Ballesteros Zamora died after suffering head trauma and internal injuries, and 29 others were injured… three of them seriously.

The driver reportedly lost control of the vehicle on a wet roadway and the bus flipped; it is unknown at this time if excessive speed played a role in the accident.

Duff McKagan tweeted "I am extremely saddened to hear of the awful bus crash yesterday en route to our MC show. To the Zamora family...I have no words."

The band followed with their own tweet: "We in Guns N' Roses are shocked and extremely saddened to hear of the horrifying bus crash en route to our Mexico City show yesterday.

"Our thoughts and hearts are with the family of Mauricio Ballesteros Zamora. We are so very sad of your loss. We hope for a speedy recovery to the 29 other injured fans. God speed." It was signed "GN'R Axl, Slash, Duff, Richard, Dizzy, Frank, and Melissa." Read more and see video here.
