Marcus Miller: "Happy to be headed home" after a bus accident in Switzerland

(Marcus Miller: "Happy to be headed home!")
From Jazzinstitut Darmstadt:

Marcus Miller and his band were involved in a bus accident when their tour bus drove into a bend on the A2 highway in central Switzerland and came to a rest on its side ( Washington Post ). The driver was killed during the accident; the 12 passengers were injured and taken to hospitals, but none had life-threatening injuries. A French website has a photo of the overturned bus ( Ouest France ). The festival promoter Claude Nobs reports in a video interview that all musicians have recovered well and will return to the USA these days ( Basler Zeitung ).

From Marcus Miller: "We are all ok. Thank you for your prayers and support. Our condolences to the family of the bus driver."
Things continue to improve daily. The band (Alex Han, Adam Agati, Louis Cato, Kris Bowers and Lee Hogans) along with Marcus' bass tech/house engineer and lighting director will be returning to the US later today.
