was impacted at a high speed, causing major damage, leaving the vehicle
inoperable. The driver of the vehicle that struck Kershaw’s bus was
taken to hospital with injuries. Kershaw, his band and crew were shaken
and sore but not seriously injured.
guys and I are a little sore today… the third day is always the worst,”
says Kershaw. “Eleven people were involved in the accident and no one
was killed. It could have gone the other way. Buses and cars can be
replaced but people can’t. I’m so thankful that the other driver, my
band and crew are all still here. We had a guardian angel.”
Kershaw has not canceled any concerts and will use alternate means of transportation until his bus is repaired.
