This wasn’t the only unfortunate incident for the Georgia jam band in recent days. On Thursday, their bus driver suffered a heart attack and died while en route to a concert in Ames, Iowa. During that episode, their bus swerved off Interstate 35, resulting in a crew member hitting his head and a series of crashes involving two big rigs on the stretch of highway.
