Update: Hinder have issued an update on their accident and touring. It reads as follows: As reported by multiple news sources, the members of multi-platinum rock act Hinder and their crew were involved in a tour bus accident outside of Cookeville, Tennessee on Wednesday, Nov. 18. The group, who were making their way to Charlotte, North Carolina for the launch of their U.S. tour, will have to cancel their performances for tonight Nov. 19 in Charlotte, NC at Amos’ Southend as well as Nov. 20 in Baltimore, MD at Baltimore Sound Stage.

It's getting to be that time of year again! The weather is becoming a factor and as many bands know, the roads can be a little more dangerous. Hinder found that out earlier yesterday (Nov. 18) when the band's bus was involved is a crash en route to their next show.
The incident happened outside of Cookeville, Tenn. and while everyone is okay, bassist Mike Rodden and the band's lighting guy Clint both suffered broken ribs in the accident. The band's bus driver was reportedly being transferred to a hospital in Nashville as well. However, they briefly lost one key member of their "crew," a service dog named Cuzco who went missing after the accident. The band posted about the accident with a photo of their smashed up bus and the missing dog shortly after the incident.
The good news is that Cuzco was eventually found, but the band revealed that their driver Dave was in surgery and were asking for thoughts and prayers. See their post below:

An official announcement concerning their show tonight in Charlotte, N.C. has yet to be made. The band is also booked to play in Baltimore and Asbury Park this weekend.
