Scotland Yard Gospel Choir In Van Accident

Six members of Chicago band Scotland Yard Gospel Choir were injured in a rollover accident yesterday in Indiana while on their way to Cincinnati. According to Chicago Breaking News, "Indiana state police said a preliminary investigation showed the band's 1999 Chevrolet van was southbound in the left lane when a tire failed on the rear passenger side, causing the van to roll over multiple times on the grassy median." According to the report:

--Mark Yoshizumi of Chicago was airlifted to Advocate Christ Hospital Medical Center in Oak Lawn with leg and internal injuries, along with major head trauma.
--Eliezer Santana Jr., 32, of Chicago, who was driving, was taken to Jasper County Hospital with a concussion and minor bleeding.
--Alison Hinderliter, 42, of Chicago was taken to Jasper County Hospital with a head injury.
--Ethan Adelsman, 32, of Chicago was taken to Jasper County Hospital with a head injury.
--Elias Einhorn, 29, of Chicago was taken to Jasper County Hospital with a head injury.
--Mary Ralph, 28, of Chicago was taken to Jasper County Hospital with head trauma and a shoulder injury.

We've also got word from Bloodshot Records that Ethan, Jay and Alison have been treated and released for their injuries.

Our thoughts are with them and all of the Bloodshot family in wishing them a speedy recovery.

UPDATE: A fund has been set up to help the band with medical bills and equipment replacement. Donate here.

Hmm, worked for me. If it's not working for you, you can PayPal your donation to tsygc@bloodshotrecords.com -- just include a note to indicate that it's for the recovery fund.

I literally saw these guys last week in one of the best shows I have ever been to. As poor as I am, musicians are more poor. Spare $5 kids!
