The Odessa File
Following Luke Bryan’s concert in Syracuse, New York, crew members were injured after they crashed their vehicle while driving home to West Virginia.
According to The Odessa File, the three men were driving on State Route 13, just north of Alpine Junction, when they “went airborne, hit a tree, and came to rest on its side in a watery ditch 150 feet from where it left the road.” The accident occurred around 8:30am on Sunday (April 10).
When Odessa Fire Department arrived on the scene, one of the men was outside of the vehicle, but the other two were trapped in the car. All three were airlifted to hospitals in Syracuse and Sayre. Odessa File also reports two are brothers.
The fire department was forced to use the Jaws of Life cutter to peel back the roof of the vehicle, a Ford Freestar minivan. Debris including a boot, the side-view mirror, a tire and parts of the car’s framing and glass were found near the crash site. Police are investigating what caused the crash, but no new information has been released.
The severity of their injuries has also not been released yet, but it was confirmed that the men worked Bryan’s Saturday night concert as part of the light-rigging crew.
Bryan has yet to comment on the accident. He is scheduled to perform in Nashville on April 12 and in Toledo, Ohio on April 14.
We wish the three men the very best during their recovery.
