The Sacremento Bee reports: Deftones bassist Chi Cheng is in a coma in a San Jose hospital following a car accident in Santa Clara on Monday.
The band's singer, Chino Moreno, reached by phone, confirmed the news but declined to give specifics.
"I don't know everything that's going on -- I just know it's very serious," Moreno said. "I'm on my way to be with his family, I'm pretty freaked out about it."
Cheng, 38, was born in Stockton and also is an accomplished poet. In 2000, he released a CD of his poetry, "The Bamboo Parachute."
The Deftones had been working on its sixth studio album, "Eros," set for a spring 2009 release. The Warner Brothers record label is expected to release a statement on Cheng's condition later today.
