Fear Factory Stars Avoid Road Crash After Driver Falls Asleep
The members of rock act Fear Factory are feeling lucky after narrowly avoiding death on the road.
The group was heading to Idaho on Tuesday (18May10) when their tourbus driver fell asleep at the wheel of the vehicle and woke up just in time to avoid a smash.
A release from guitarist Dino Cazares reads, "He (driver) swerved to the opposite side of the road... and woke up in time to swerve back onto our side of the road and pull over. Thank God there was no oncoming cars or 18-wheelers on the road. Everyone is fine, just a little nervous."
It is not known if the exhausted driver will keep his job behind the wheel for the remainder of Fear Factory's U.S. dates.
