The Cult frotnman Ian Astbury tells the media that he had quite the scare after the band’s tour bus was involved in an incident earlier this week in Croatia. the band was on its way to Slovenia from Croatia when it slammed into a guardrail, causing the bus to tip before finally writing itself. The incident damaged part of the front end of the bus. In an interview, Astbury explained what happened. “I was the only one awake,” he said. “All of a sudden, the bus veered violently, hit the guard rail and tipped on a 45-degree angle, then righted itself and came to a halt. The guard rail was the only thing that prevented us from going over an 80-foot drop.”
Being the only one awake at the time, Astbury was thrown into the bus’s aisle, causing injuries to his back, neck, and shoulder. He was the ony one who sustained any major injuries. the band was able to work on the bus and make its way to its next stop.
