Rivers Cuomo Hurt in Bus Crash, Weezer Cancel Shows

December 7, 2009

Weezer frontman Rivers Cuomo was hospitalized yesterday after a bus he and his family were riding in crashed in upstate New York.

Rivers Cuomo was taken to a hospital in the city of Amsterdam, New York early Sunday morning after complaining of rib pain. Luckily for him, his wife and daughter were not injured. Only one other person was taken to the hospital. According to a post on the band's website, Rivers "cracked three ribs and sustained some mostly minor but very painful internal damage, as well as hurting his lower leg somehow."

The bus driver said when he lost control of the vehicle after hitting a patch of ice. He said the bus went into the median, hit reflective posts, crossed back over the highway, and crashed into a ditch. Holy crap.

Weezer has also canceled the remaining dates of their December Raditude tour following the tour bus crash. Say it ain’t so!
