The Cadillac Three Feeling ‘Extremely Lucky’ Following Bus Accident
We were extremely lucky today. Everybody is ok. Our new custom trailer basically broke in half and went into traffic on the interstate. Thanks to the Canadian peace officers and DOT crew for their quick response. We will be using limited TC3 gear for the rest of the @kipmooremusic tour but I promise we will bring the heat. . . @thecadillac3
TC3 and Moore are currently playing shows in Canada, and while traveling to a concert in Penticton, British Columbia, their trailer “basically broke in half and went into traffic on the interstate,” according to an Instagram post from the Cadillac Three’s frontman, Jaren Johnston.
“We were extremely lucky today. Everybody is OK,” Johnston writes. “… Thanks to the Canadian peace officers and DOT crew for their quick response.”
A second post reveals that the trailer “did a full 360, hopped a median and spent a second in oncoming traffic;” miraculously, however, TC3’s gear all stayed in place.
“My boys can pack a trailer like no other,” Johnson writes.
The band will be using limited gear throughout the rest of the Wild Ones Tour — they’re keeping three guitars on their bus just to be safe — but otherwise, they will continue on the road as planned.
“Like my dad always says, ‘Sometimes in this business you run into problems, and it’s always when you don’t want em,'” Kelby Ray says on Instagram. “We’re fine. Gear’s fine. Nobody got hurt. On to the next town.”
The Wild Ones Tour is scheduled to play Penticton on Friday night (Feb. 19). A complete list of tour dates is available on Moore’s official website.
