Man Killed in Accident Involving Motley Crue’s Equipment Truck
A man was killed in an accident involving a semi-trailer truck hauling Motley Crue‘s equipment. The accident happened Friday morning in Jefferson County, Ala.
According to WBRC, the band’s 18-wheeler jackknifed around 4:15AM on Aug. 15 in the southbound lanes of I-65 and collided with a vehicle driven by 47-year-old Wayne Marsh, who died at the scene.
The driver of Motley Crue’s truck was transported to a local hospital. WBRC reports that his condition is unknown at this time.
As Blabbermouth notes, this isn’t the first time a truck hauling equipment for the Crue has been involved in an accident. In 2012, the group’s show with Kiss near Detroit was postponed after a truck carrying pyrotechnics for its show flipped on an Ohio highway.
The recent accident reportedly didn’t affect the band’s concert at the Oak Mountain Amphitheatre in Birmingham that night.
