AceShowbiz - Country singer Josh Turner has released a statement after a devastating bus crash in California claimed the life of a member of his road crew.
Eight people were hospitalised following the accident near San Luis Obispo last Wednesday night, September 18, with roadie David Turner later pronounced dead.
The crash took place as the road crew was heading to a show in Yakima, Washington following the singer's concert at Vina Robles Amphitheatre in Paso Robles, California.
Taking to Facebook to reflect on the accident on Tuesday, Josh wrote: "As I try to write this I don't know what to say. It's a struggle to put into words the devastation and grief that our road family is trying to process, We lost a beloved member of our team, David Turner. He was like a brother to so many in this industry and a devoted husband, father and grandfather. Please continue to keep David's family in your prayers."
"All of our crew suffered significant injuries and many have long roads to recovery. I would ask that you give them privacy during this time. Your prayers have been felt. Please keep praying."
Josh, who wasn't involved in the accident himself, and his management team have set up a GoFundMe page to raise money for the victims of the crash.
