Godsmack Frontman Involved In Car Accident

Lindsay Taylor is currently in critical condition at a Boston hospital after the car she was riding in was hit by Godsmack front-man Sully Erna's Hummer H3. The accident occurred on April 11th and at the time the injuries were not considered life-threatening, however Taylor was said to be in a coma and on life support on Saturday, April 14th. However her condition has been improving over the last few days and is no long listed as critical.

Erna has expressed that he is "shaken up" and "traumatized" about the girl who was left with life threatening injuries after the wreck he was involved in last week. Sully's Hummer H3, which rear-ended a toyota camry near Boston, was the third car in a 3-car pileup.

Erna's manager says, "He's deeply concerned for the girl who was hurt in this unfortunate accident. Sully's thankful he got out with a split lip and some aches and pains, but he's traumatized about the girl."

This is a truly sad thing. I hope that Sully wasnt drunk or anything. I hope that the victim continues to get better everyday. It really sucks that this happened. But after everything is said and sone, Im sure Sully will be sued.

He was the THIRD car in a three car pile up, there was probably nothing he could do, since none of you are probably old enough to drive, when she breaks loose in front of you, there isn't always a place to go, and sometimes it all happens a bit fast for you to do something, or to avoid rear ending someone.

If he was "awake" at the wheel he would not have to "re-align" his H3's hood, and he would have to feel so "hollow" about chrusing some woman and her little car.

Seriously though, i glad that she is now longer critical, vechiclular manslaughter would be an awful thing to deal with i am glad everthing should be fine.

Hey if you are going to get in a car accident, It might as well be with sully erma. Not only does he kick a$$ on stage anymore

Interesting to note that instead of going to the hospital to check on the injured girl, he went to a damn book-signing. What a tool. I guess that's just his way of showing he cares. If I were Sully's attorney, I'd have a talk with him. Fast.

Oh, blah, blah, blah.

"My favorite band ever has a retard for a lead singer so I'm gonna break down the specs of two automobiles to somehow illustrate the point that my favorite lead singer ever isn't a total fattened and burned-out sh**head. The nose of the hood of the H3 sits %0.003 higher than the hood of the H1, and I'm gonna state that like it fvcking matters at all."

...and another thing, i don't see how this survived miscarriage's car was the THIRD car in a three-car pileup when he was the one that f***ing caused it. They say his car was the THIRD because he was behind the other two cars that got hit. He looked down so he could text OTEP on his Palm Pilot and his dumbass slammed into a Toyota which, in turn, slammed into another car.

He's still a retard and he needs to be executed by making him listen to his own band.

Zero54, You say "you may as well be in an accident with someone as talented as Sully" You obviously are not a parent and cannot imagine what Lindseys family are going through. GROW UP!! If he were paying attention she wouldn't be fighting for her life right now.....

you all are seriously immature. maybe before you post something you should check the fects out, for instance, accordin to another site, he did go to the hospital later, as for him talegating, the same could be said for the 2nd car in the pile up, if that driver was not riding the a** of the first car, then it would have not been hit.

Isn't Sully wiccan? Aren't they treehuggers? Why is he driving an H3? And I'm glad the girl is ok.

Yeah, Sully is a Wiccan, and it is in fact a nature-based belief system. Kind of ironic.

Personally, I know people make mistakes like this all the time (I've been in a situation like this where it's been MY fault too) and it's his at fault for "Texting Otep" (whatever that means).
People make MISTAKES, and YES Sully is still human like the rest of us even though he's famous. sh**ty for the girl, true he's at fault, but it's not like he purposely smashed into the cars in front of him. And it's pretty damn sweet of him to go see her.

obviously this world lacks compassion and mercy so what the f*** ever. a car wreck is f***ing traumatizing no matter what the f*** happened or who's f***ing fault it was, but obviously none of you sh** talkers have ever been in a car wreck and had anyone seriously injured or hurt...f*** what you are all saying about sully, no one wants to f***ing hit the car in front of them and given the fact that he has a f***ing 5 year old daughter, i highly doubt he had a death wish for himself or anyone else for that matter. and f*** whoever said whatever about a palm piolet and starbucks, you obviously have no f***ing idea what you're talking about and i hope God has mercy on your soul. for all of those making fun of sully after such a tragic event, f*** YOU. maybe you'll get what's coming to you and you'll be the next to be in a car wreck and then you'll come back here and cry your b**** a$$ eyes out and realize "holy sh**, rock stars have feelings too" you f***ing a$$holes.

This is what happened........Sully was listening to his own CD and when he listened, he realized how bad his own music was, so while briefly closing his eyes he was like, "GOD!!". Then all of a sudden......SMACK!!!! and he rear ended 2 cars in front of him. Then he realized that this accident was no "accident", it was fate and destiny. This is why the bands name was Godsmack. hahaha jk, im just playin. i got nothing against them. lol
