Metal band involved in recent crash and extrication

SUMMIT COUNTY, Utah — On June 27, an accident involving a van rear-ending a semi-truck led to the extrication of two people. It’s been reported that the van involved in the crash contained the hardcore band Year of the Knife.

The band’s Twitter account posted a tweet stating, “We got in a REALLY bad accident. Everyone’s alive. We’re stuck in SLC.”

Lead vocalist Madi Watkins was reported to be in critical condition on June 29. Other members of the Delaware group were reported to have sustained broken bones and other injuries but are in stable condition.

Friends and family of the band members began a gofundme to help pay for medical costs. The page stated, “Last night, the band was driving from SLC to Colorado Springs when they collided with an 18-wheeler. Andy & Aaron both sustained broken legs and other trauma. Brandon is concussed. Madi is in critical condition with head and spinal injuries and a few broken bones. As we wait for additional information on their conditions, we are doing the best we can to alleviate any stress possible. As you can assume, their touring van is totaled. The van also doubles as Madi and B’s sole vehicle so this will impact them in more ways than just touring.”

No recent health updates have been provided by its social media accounts.
