Epica tour bus involved in road accident Band and crew members stay unharmed While touring the US with their Design Your Universe Tour 2010, drummer Arin van Weesenbeek and his band Epica were involved in a road accident with their tour bus While touring the US with their Design Your Universe Tour 2010, drummer Ariën van Weesenbeek and his band Epica were involved in a road accident with their tour bus. In the early hours of Friday, February 12, Epica's tour bus crashed on Canadian Highway way 1 while driving in the Rocky Mountains when a car lost control and went spinning for the bus.

The bus driver, Dave Mabry, managed to avoid a head-on collision by running the bus against the rail-guard. Although the car and the bus suffered severe damage, and some band and crew members got thrown out of their bunks, fortunately no one got hurt.

After a few hours delay and some on the the spot repairs the bus was able to continue the to Victoria Canada. Watch a movie from Epica's Canadian adventures including some footage of the accident here:
