One of the buses carrying the second stringers to the Denver date on Eminem's Anger Management tour was involved in a six vehicle pile-up. Ther bus collided with two lorries, and then three further vehicles got muddled up in it:

The Missouri Highway Patrol said the bus was traveling at a high rate of speed when it shot off Interstate 70 about 20 miles east of Kansas City to avoid slow moving semis. The bus veered back onto the highway and clipped one of the trucks, which shot across several lanes and into oncoming traffic. The bus hit a second semi and flipped as four other vehicles collided with the debris.

Amongst 11 injuries, Alchemist (Alan Maman to his mam) suffered collapsed lung and broken ribs; Stat Quo (Stanley Benton) had treatment for 'bumps and bruises' and will be rejoining the tour. For Alchemist, though, the tour is over.
