This new Crazy Tour Stories segment was written by the acoustic pop artist, Gabe Kubanda. You can check out his wild story from the road, after the break.
“Last year, on our Spring Tour, our tour bus was rammed off the road by a semi truck, which basically flipped our 40 foot bus off the road and into the soft dirt median between the I-5 freeway near Bakersfield, CA. I was sleeping in my bunk, but I remember being woken up by a sudden impact, then feeling our bus speed up, then a moment where we were just suspended in mid air, then pitch black, then chaos erupting around us. Miraculously, all 10 of us on the bus escaped with minimal to moderate injuries, however our bus and all our gear was completely destroyed. We are so thankful to be alive!
The driver of the semi truck told the police that he was reaching down for some beef jerky when he swerved and hit us, but they didn’t buy that. They figured out that he fell asleep at the wheel, gunned it, rammed our bus, continued to accelerate until we were forced off the road, at which point, we went airborne, flipped twice through the air before crashing down on it’s side. Needless to say, we had to cancel the tour, but our summer tour started up 3 weeks later! What doesn’t kill ya definitely makes you stronger. :)”
