Savannah, GA metal band Baroness was involved in a bus crash near Bath, England today, leaving two people “seriously” injured, reports the BBC. Seven others sustained minor injuries.

According to ITV, the incident happened at 11:30am local time while the band was on their way to Southampton. It’s unclear what caused the bus to crash and fall 30 feet over a viaduct, however, “heavy rain in the area reduced visibility and it was not possible for the air ambulance to land.”

Update: According to an issued statement, “all band members and personnel on board are currently receiving medical treatment.” Consequently, “all remaining dates on the band’s European tour have been canceled. Additional details to come as more information is available.”
