In mid 2012, Southern sludge rockers Baroness were involved in a very serious bus accident while touring in the UK in support of their latest album Yellow & Green. A total of nine people were injured, including three members of Baroness. Singer/guitarist John Baizley suffered a broken arm and a broken leg.
The accident was caused when the bus fell 30ft from a viaduct, crashing into trees and brush. The weather conditions were apparently dreadful at the time of the crash, including “torrential rain” and it being “quite windy”.
Now, BBC is reporting that the driver, 39-year old Norman Markus, will be charged for the accident. He is facing charges of “…using a vehicle with defective brakes and breaching a 7.5 tonne weight limit. Mr Markus is also facing charges of insufficient daily and weekly rest periods and using a vehicle in a condition likely to cause danger of injury.”
