Easton Injured In New Cars Accident

Guitarist Elliot Easton of The New Cars reportedly suffered a broken left clavicle June 5th when the band’s tour bus swerved to avoid another vehicle en route to a gig at the The Filene Center at Wolf Trap in Virginia.

The band said it had wrapped a show with co-headliners Blondie at the Blossom Music Center in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio, when the early-morning accident occurred.

Easton was taken to a hospital for treatment after being thrown from a bunk, but the band has not been forced to cancel any appearances.
