Twin Shadow and his band — who are currently on the road in support of Eclipse — have reportedly been involved in a bus accident. Occurring early this morning near Aurora, Colorado, the Denver Post reports that George Lewis, Jr. was en route to Denver when the bus crashed in “a multi-vehicle accident with multiple injuries.” The Post also reports that 12 people were taken to the hospital and that the severity of the injuries are not known at this time. Bass and keyboardist Spencer Zahn reportedly texted his mother the following: “I’ve been in an accident. I’m in pain but I am conscious. Help is here.” An on-site reporter, who is tweeting live updates, noted that most of the injured parties were riding in the crew bus, and members of the band were in another bus.
