While traveling from Monaco to the Netherlands, the U.S. musician and his crew got into an accident in Switzerland.
Grammy-winning musician Marcus Miller was involved in a bus accident in Switzerland on Sunday, November 25. The U.S. musician was injured in the accident that killed the bus driver.
Miller was traveling on the bus with ten members of his band from Monte Carlo in Monaco to Hengelo in the Netherlands. The German-registered private bus tipped over as it drove into a bend on the A2 highway near the town of Schattdorf in central Switzerland. It came to a rest on its side, police said via the Associated Press.
The bus driver died from his injuries, a Swiss police spokesman Karl Egli said while reserve driver and the rest of the passengers were not seriously hurt. They were all taken to hospital but no further details were released. Cause of the accident is still unknown. Police believe that there were no other vehicle involved.
Miller and his entourage were fresh from performing in Monte Carlo on Saturday and were due to perform a concert in Hengelo on Monday and Tilburg the next day. It is unclear whether the dates will be canceled. The musician, who has won two Grammys, was on tour to promote his album "Renaissance".
The 53-year-old has collaborated with such artists as Miles Davis, Herbie Hancock and Luther Vandros. The Brooklyn native won Grammys as a producer, composer and musician in a span of four decades.
