Two Die in Tragic Bonnaroo Car Fire
Two people driving to Bonnaroo Festival have died in a major car accident in Manchester, Tennessee. Five others were injured when 10 cars piled up on Interstate 23, according to Consequence of Sound. Police say that a tractor failed to stop for traffic and struck several vehicles, where two caught fire and one exploded before the flames could be put out, killing both passengers. Meanwhile, Mumford & Sons have cancelled their headline slot at the festival after bassist Ted Dwayne was hospitalised with a blood clot on his brain this week, according to this statement from the band: "It is with great joy that we can announce that Ted has been discharged from hospital and is on the road to a full recovery. The surgery went well, and the excellent medical team helping him are very pleased with his progress. He has been nothing short of heroic in how he has handled the whole ordeal, and now it has been medically proved that he does indeed have a brain. "We were hoping to have made it out by Bonnaroo this weekend. But it is with sadness that we have to announce the cancellation of our scheduled performances at both Bonnaroo and Telluride Festivals ... We trust that you can respect our collective desire to encourage Ted to make a full recovery, and that this is based purely on the medical advice we have received. "On behalf of Ted, and all of us really, we would like to thank every one for their compassion and support at this time and we are very excited to get back out on tour as soon as we can."
