Members of North Carolina-based bluegrass/gospel group Harvest Wind were en route to a show in Missouri this past Friday (5/25) when their van was struck from behind, sending the vehicle into the path of a tractor trailer. The accident occurred near Clarksville, TN.
Eight people traveling in the van were injured, and one died while being transported to the hospital.
The Tennessean in Nashville, and the Statesville Record & Landmark both have stories on the crash. Their articles both indicate that the identity of the person killed in the accident was being withheld by the Tennessee Highway Patrol, but subsequent reports have noted that it was Crystal Wood, wife of Harvest Wind guitarist Brad Wood.
Notes of sympathy and encouragement can be sent via the band’s web site. Bluegrass Today extends our condolences to the band and the Wood family.
