The band Sleep Signals were involved in a serious accident while on tour with P.O.D., From Ashes To New and All Good Things on Wednesday 18 August 2021.
Robert Cosgrove, Wyatt Henderson, Grant Evans, Mike Kenway and Jeffrey Lucero suffered minor injuries and were taken to a hospital via ambulance. Travis Wheeler suffered “serious” injuries and was airlifted to a hospital in St. Joseph, Missouri.
“I’m lucky to be alive,” Travis said via the bands Facebook page. “And while I can’t go into huge detail about my injuries, I have multiple broken bones, and have suffered several amputations. Please stay strong for me and I’ll stay strong for you.￼ I love each and every single one of you.”
The bus itself and the band’s gear was described as a complete loss.
“As we continue to process the events from Wednesday morning,” the band said, “we are reminded how fortunate we all are to be alive. Without going into too many details at this time, the band and crew did suffer some devastatingly extensive injuries and our vehicle/gear are a complete loss.
“It will be a very long road to recovery and we sincerely apologise to all of our fans, promoters, and everyone involved that we will not be able to continue the tour with P.O.D., From Ashes To New, and All Good Things.
“Our good friend, Jason Carey, was kind enough to create a GoFundMe to help cover our medical bills and losses and we appreciate any support.”
