Fine And Fortunate
Posted on February 12, 2008This past Sunday (Oct 4) at around 5:00am en route to Orlando, Florida from Jacksonville, doubleDrive was involved in an accident. While driving down route 75 South around Gainesville, Fl, they flipped their van and trailer (apparently it rolled over several times). Guitarist Troy bruised his ribs, but miraculously all escaped alive & without any serious injuries, just bruises & cuts. The van landed driver's side down.
Their buddies in Manmade God, who they were on tour with at the time, were already in Orlando when the accident happened, but drove back 2 hours to pick them up & drive them to Orlando to sleep...and doubleDrive actually played the gig that night. doubleDrive gives huge thanks to Manmade God for their efforts during this time.
doubleDrive had plans to go back out on the road with Seether, but such plans have since been put on hold. The band is now back home to recuperate, regroup & figure everything out.
Frontman Donnie tells, "here's to inertia." When the accident happened while traveling down the highway, their van flipped so fast that nobody ever had the chance to hit the top of the van. Inertia, indeed.
doubleDrive, get well soon...and smile.
