Marcus Miller in Bus Crash

Grammy winning bassist Marcus Miller was injured when his tour bus overturned in Switzerland Sunday (November 25). According to Billboard, the German-registered private bus tipped over as it drove into a bend on the A2 highway in central Switzerland, killing the driver. The bus was carrying 13 people – two drivers and 11 members of the Marcus Miller Band, including Miller. The band had finished up a show in Monaco, Monte Carlo and were on their way to their next gig in Hengelo, Netherlands when the accident occurred. Marcus was released from the hospital, but several of his bandmates and crew members were being kept overnight for observation.

Marcus comments on his Facebook page: “Thanks to everyone who has called, texted, posted messages, sent prayers and is keeping Marcus and the band and crew in your thoughts. I wish I had the time to respond to each of you individually…for now, please understand that things are a little hectic, and know that the band and crew are all okay. Our thoughts and prayers are with the bus driver and his family. I’ll post again tomorrow if there are any updates. Bibi…signing off for the night.”
