Yesterday near Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Inner Circle's tour bus crashed into a highway cable barrier on Interstate 10 as the classic reggae band traveled to California to kick off its summer tour. A tire blowout was the cause.
"Listen man, God is good," cofounder and guitarist Roger Lewis tells Crossfade. "I thought the whole bus was gon' flip and it was all gon' be over. It was like a movie, everyting was flyin' and turnin'. The only thing that held us from flipping was a wire. And the driver was very good, he held tight. We skid into a ravine and then crash. Somebody great was looking out for us boy, somebody great."
We happened to be there with a camera as the bus prepared to leave for tour Monday night.
