In a bit of sad news, The Scotland Yard Gospel Choir's van overturned in Indiana Thursday en route to their concert in Cincinnati and were rushed to the Jasper County Hospital in Rensselaer, IN. Bloodshot Records released a statement including this report:
Alison Hinderliter, Jay Santana, and Ethan Adelsman were all released from the hospital last night with minor injuries. Elia Einhorn was held overnight with injuries to his head and neck, and is expected to be released tomorrow. Mary Ralph has a broken pelvis and collarbone, and will probably be moved to a hospital closer to home. Mark Yoshizumi was airlifted to Christ Hospital in Oak Lawn last night with injuries to his head, back, and neck. He is in serious condition, but making progress. Our thoughts go out to all our friends in the band, and their families, friends, and significant others.
In addition to the physical injuries, the van itself and all the gear within it were destroyed. Bloodshot has set up a PayPal account for anyone who wants to help out with the gear or the medical bills. Here are the links to do your part if you so choose.
