The Dillinger Escape Plan‘s tour bus crashed with a lorry this morning in Poland, near the town of Radomsko. According to Polish news reports, 13 people are in two hospitals (Radomsko and Częstochowa) with the lorry driver being seriously injured.
The lorry crashed into the trailer and then crashed into the rear of the tour bus. Local reports claim the band and crew have only minor injuries.
The band were on their way to Cracow after their gig in the Polish capital, Warsaw, the previous night. Live Nation Poland announced on their Facebook page that the Cracow concert is now cancelled.

Metal Injection, who spoke to guitarist Ben Weinman, have some more insight:
“Everyone is alive, a few injuries, but it could be much worse.” He explained that the bus was hit from the back, with the truck smashing through their gear before continuing to plow into the bus itself. The impact was serious and banged them up pretty good. The whole situation sounds horrific
