Grammy-winning Bassist Marcus Miller Hurt in Serious Bus Crash

In what appears to be a tragic accident, one person was killed and 12 were left injured. Grammy-winning Bassist Marcus Miller Hurt in Serious Bus Crash

The Marcus Miller band and their two drivers were traveling on a busy highway in Switzerland when, as it drove into a bend on the A2 highway, when their private bus tipped and came to rest on its side. 

Sadly, one of the bus drivers died in the accident and, while there were no other life-threatening situations, all of the remaining passengers had to be taken to the hospital due to injury. Grammy-winning jazz bassist Marcus Miller, the leader of the band, was among them but no details have been released about his condition.

Miller has had an illustrious career having worked with Miles Davis, Dizzy Gillespie, Luther Vandross (with whom he won a Grammy for “Power of Love” in 1991) and so many more.

The accident occurred while they were on route to the Dutch town of Hengelo after performing in Monte Carlo.  They were set to perform today.

The preliminary reports indicate that there were no other vehicles involved but the cause of the accident has not been formally determined.  However, anyone who has ever been in a bus on one of those winding roads can easily understand how this can happen.
