Asking Alexandria’s Bus Struck By Drunk Driver; Band Determined To Make Extreme Thing

Asking Alexandria 2012

Asking Alexandria are shaken, but okay this morning after their bus was struck by a drunk driver in the middle of the night.

UTG is still in the process of creating a full narrative for last night’s events, but according to a tweet from frontman Danny Worsnop at 5:01 AM (EST) the band’s bus was struck by a drunk driver while en route to Extreme Thing. At the time he expressed doubts the band would be able to perform at the event.

Worsnop tweeted again a short while later to reprot that everyone was sore, but okay overall. The band’s trailer however, as well as the other car the driver hit during his drunk rampage, were damaged.

All hope for those attending Extreme Thing to see Asking Alexandria is not lost. Lead guitarist Ben Bruce also tweeted about the incident, adding both a photo of the crime scene as well as the reassurance that the band was determined to make it to today’s event.

You can view Bruce’s photo from the accident after the jump. Be sure to watch Asking Alexandria’s Twitter to learn whether or not they make it to Extreme Thing.
