Barenaked Ladies singer Ed Robertson and three others walked away from a plane crash Sunday afternoon in eastern Ontario, police said Monday. The float plane crashed into a wooded area near Baptiste Lake, north of Bancroft, early Sunday afternoon while trying to land, said Const. Tracey McDonald of the Bancroft OPP. Police confirmed that Robertson was a passenger aboard the small plane. No one was injured in the crash and all four were able to walk out of the woods and report the crash, police were quoted as saying in the Belleville Intelligencer. Band spokesman Adam Smith told the Intelligencer: "Everyone is fine and that is the important thing." Robertson received his pilot's licence in 2005 and hosts a TV show called Ed's Up, documenting his travels by plane. It is the second time this summer that a member of the Canadian band has been in the news. Singer Steven Page made headlines when he was arrested in upstate New York and charged with possession of a controlled substance on July 11. Court documents allege Page admitted to snorting cocaine in his girlfriend's apartment. Page was taken into police custody, but was later released after posting $10,000 bail. If convicted, he faces up to 5 years in prison. Thanks for the info to
