Good to hear that the band and crew should eventually bounce back. I feel bad for the driver though, it sounds like the conditions were awful when the accident happened. Getting caught in a mountainous area when the weather decides to throw a tantrum sucks.

Understandable why that driver is in critical condition still considering it was a flat nose bus. At least no one died.
