After learning about Carl White’s auto accident over the weekend, we heard from Dwight McCall (American Drive) that their bass player, Kyle Perkins, also wrecked his car on Saturday morning.
Like Carl, Kyle lost control of his car on slick roads and rolled several times. It broke his windshield, knocked the top rack off the car, broke the back axle and knocked the back tires off the rims.
This is his terse report:
“I rolled it 3 times, went across the median and landed on the wheels in oncoming traffic.
I escaped with only a stiff neck and shoulders – God was watching over me!!!”
Given the number of miles bluegrass artists travel every year, it’s fortunate we don’t hear more stories like this. The next time you see your favorite band at a festival or show, maybe a word of thanks for all they do to bring us the music we love would be in order.
