Frank Iero Involved in Serious Vehicle Crash
According to Australia's 9News, there was a crash between a bus and the musician's tour van. The bus was reportedly not carrying any passengers at the time, but the driver of the vehicle was taken to the hospital for mandatory tests. Meanwhile, Iero escaped injury in the accident but two other men had to be taken to the hospital. One was airlifted by helicopter while the other was taken via ambulance. Both men were reported to be in stable condition and Iero gave his statement to the police. Because of the accident, the band canceled their scheduled performance Thursday (Oct. 13) at the Metro Theatre in Sydney.
