The rock band Hinder was involved in a tour bus crash which left their bass player and two members of their road crew in hospital.

Bassist Mike Rodden and a crew member suffered broken ribs in the crash, and the bus driver required surgery to treat unspecified injuries.
They posted the following on Facebook, “We just wanted to let everyone know that we were in a bus accident today outside of Cookeville, TN, (Bassist) Mike and our lighting guy Clint are in the X-ray room right now. Our bus driver, Dave, is being transferred to a hospital in Nashville. Everyone will be okay but we have a missing friend. Our driver Dave had his service dog, Cuzco, with him.
