Last night we reported that country music recording artist John King was hospitalized and, thankfully, released from medical care following a weekend car accident. However, today, some unfortunate details emerged regarding the incident involving John and his band.
The two-vehicle crash allegedly occurred early Saturday morning on the Wright Memorial Bridge in North Carolina after a T-top flew off the roof of a vehicle and landed in the road. The driver of the vehicle stopped the car and went to remove the T-top from the roadway when an SUV and trailer, driven by the “Tonight Tonight” singer hit the parked vehicle. Sadly, the passenger in the stopped car was ejected upon impact and died at the scene. The rest of the vehicles’ occupants were taken to the hospital for treatment to injuries. Neither alcohol or speeding are considered factors in the accident and no charges have been filed.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to the victim’s friends and family, as well as John, his band, and the driver of the other vehicle during this difficult time.
