Bass icon Marcus Miller was injured in a crash early Sunday morning in Switzerland after his tour bus tipped over on the A2 highway. The bus driver was killed, while Miller and 11 other passengers were taken to local hospitals for treatment. Police say the cause of the accident is still unclear. Miller’s manager Bibi Green issued an update on the bassist’s Facebook page.
“I haven’t had the chance to look at posts, but I know everyone is concerned for Marcus’ safety, and the safety of the band and crew,” she said. “They were in a bus accident this morning in Switzerland. Sadly the bus driver was killed, but Marcus, the band and crew are all okay. Marcus has already been released from the hospital as have Alex Han and Kris Bowers. Some band and crew are being kept in hospitals overnight. I will be in touch very soon with more news. Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers.”
Miller and his band have been on a European tour in support of his latest release, Renaissance, and they were on their way from Monte Carlo to Hengelo when the accident occurred.
Our thoughts are with Marcus and all those affected by this tragedy.
