Band Leaves Hospital After Tour Bus Crash
All four members of an American rock band who were injured in a bus crash in Somerset while touring Britain have been released from hospital.
The band, Baroness, from Savannah in Georgia, were on the British leg of their European tour when their coach crashed through a safety barrier and fell 30ft (9m) on Wednesday August 15.
Emergency services said two people, including the driver, were trapped in the wreckage at the junction of Brassknocker Hill and the A36 in Bath.
They were cut free and, having suffered the most serious injuries including multiple fractures, were taken to Frenchay Hospital in Bristol.
According to Great Western Ambulance Service, the other seven suffered more minor injuries and were taken to the Royal United Hospital in Bath.
Baroness's line-up consists of John Baizley, Peter Adams, Matt Maggioni and Allen Blickle. They had played in Bristol the previous night and were travelling to a gig at the Talking Heads in Southampton when the accident happened at around 11.30am.
A statement on the band's website read: ''John Baizley has been released from hospital. Allen and Matt have arrived back in the United States.
''All remaining 2012 tour dates are cancelled. Thank you for all of the continued support.''
Mr Adams had previously been discharged from hospital, the band confirmed.
An investigation was launched to establish how and why the coach left the road.
