Car crash leaves J Mascis injured

A tour van carrying J Mascis and his band The Fog was involved in a crash, leaving Mascis with two broken vertebrae in his back, according to Rolling Stone. Headed to an appearance in Germany on Monday, the van skid off the highway after being cut off by another vehicle. Mascis, formerly of Dinosaur Jr., was the only person in the van seriously injured and will return Wednesday to the United States. Mascis and The Fog were in the last week of a month-long European tour when the accident occurred. The rest of the tour dates have been cancelled. The final date of the tour was to be the Hurricane Festival in Scheessel, Germany, performing alongside Everclear, Weezer and Iggy Pop.
