Metallica's Gear

Semi-Trailer Reportedly Hauling Metallica’s Equipment Involved In Serious Crash Earlier This Week


0

According to numerous reports, Metallica‘s road crew was recently involved in a serious accident in Lake George, NY. A semi-trailer truck carrying some of the equipment for the band’s ongoing tour was involved in a crash in Lake George, NY while en route to Montreal, QC for a pair of shows in the city this weekend.

The crash took place this past Monday, August 07th, and saw the semi-trailer hauling gear for the band apparently collide with a separate semi-truck hauling a loaded car carrier. The initial accident led to several secondary crashes from other drivers. Footage of the crash has since emerged on social media, as seen below.

Police confirmed that no serious injuries were sustained in the crash. The truck involved is said to be part of a small fleet of vehicles Metallica employ to haul the rather elaborate stage production and equipment they use to hold their concerts.

As it currently stands, the band are still expected to perform their scheduled shows at the Stade Olympique in Montreal tonight, August 11th and this Sunday, August 13th.
