Frank Iero Taken To Hospital After Bus Crashes Into Tour Van

Former guitarist of My Chemical Romance, Frank Iero, was taken to a hospital after a bus crashed into his van in Sydney, Australia.

Now on tour with his new band, Frank Iero and the Patience, several band members were unloading their van when a bus crashed into them.

They were scheduled to perform at Sydney’s Metro Theater, but the show has now been cancelled and all tickets have been refunded.

According to Austalia’s 9 NewsIero “escaped serious injuries but two other men had to be taken to hospital.” It continues, “One of the men was airlifted to St Vincent’s Hospital, the other was taken by road. They are both reported to be serious but stable.”

There were no passengers on the bus, but the driver was taken to the hospital for mandatory tests.

Iero tweeted that him and the members are “pretty banged up but miraculously alive” and that he’s still “in a state of shock.”

The band’s bassist, Alexander Paul, confirmed that he was not at the venue at the time of the accident but he’s been told that “everyone is in stable condition.”

Gerard Way, who is also a former member of My Chemical Romance, expressed that he is “heartbroken” to hear the news and sends his thoughts to all involved.

We hope for a speedy recovery for Frank Iero and the Patience!
