Accidents can be caused by any number of factors. Road conditions, driving experience, and whether or not a driver is distracted all play a part. Eating and drinking while driving can also increase your chances of an accident.
A tour bus carrying members of Gregg Allman’s stage crew crashed last week in Jackson County, West Virginia, had an accident caused by food. According to authorities, the bus driver choked on his coffee while driving. This caused him to veer into the northbound lane and crash into a hillside. He had been traveling southbound on I-77 towards Charleston at the time of the incident.
Three of Allman’s crew members aboard the bus were taken to Charleston’s CAMC General Hospital with minor injuries. They included Earl McCoy, Timothy Wright, and Michael Gallun. McCoy is the front of house audio engineer and production manager. Wright is the stage technician, and Gallun is the monitor engineer. They were all released shortly afterward.
Allman, who had a scheduled appearance in Charleston, West Virginia, was not on board the tour bus when the crash occurred. Despite the accident, the show went on as planned.
