According to a press release from the band’s publicist, nobody was seriously injured in the crash; however, lead Ian Astbury did some damage to his neck, back and shoulder.

Astbury said “I was the only one awake. All of a sudden, the bus veered violently, hit the guard rail and tipped on a 45-degree angle, then righted itself and came to a halt. The guard rail was the only thing that prevented us from going over an 80-foot drop.”

The bus was able to make it to the next town where it was repaired and the band went on to make their next show.

“No one has had any sleep, so the guys are pretty beat, and we are still in shock, to be honest. You never think something like this is going to happen to you, and it just did.”

The band did keep it positive on their website, posting the picture of the damaged bus and saying:
NEARLY AVERTING A FLIP….

Tour bus hit a guard rail up on a bridge near Zagreb. Shaken up & twisted up…few torn muscles… but everyone is okay.

ON TO KILL IT IN SLOVENIA, FOLKS.

we love you.
