Alfie Escape Bus Accident

Published: 2005-09-07
All the members of the indie rock band Alfie are counting their lucky stars after escaping an accident on the band's tour bus.

The band, from Manchester, England, is currently touring to support their August 2005 release Crying at Teatime. After their gig in Nottingham they were traveling to Glasgow when they hit an abandoned vehicle in the middle of the road.

According to a statement on their website, "The band were all asleep in their bunks and were clearly awoken as a result of this incident. Fortunately the driver managed to control the coach and bring it to a standstill without any major injuries being sustained."

Though the band was lucky enough to escape with only a few cuts and bruises the coach they were traveling in wasn't so lucky.

Being the troopers that they are Alfie is continuing to tour and didn't miss any dates on their schedule. Their UK tour goes for the rest of the month - no word on if they'll be heading our way any time soon.
