Josh Turner's Road Crew in Tour Bus Crash, One Dead

Early this morning (September 19) around 5AM, the fire department of San Luis Obispo County, CA, reported a tour bus carrying Josh Turner's road crew was involved in a deadly accident late Wednesday night. David Turner, 64, was killed in the accident. Seven others were injured.

David Turner (no relation to Josh Turner) has been a longtime sound crew member for over a decade.

Turner and his band were not on the bus when it crashed in Shandon, California. The cause of the crash is still under investigation. AP News reported the bus left the road for unknown reasons then continued along a dirt shoulder before smashing through a fence and plunging off the cliff where it landed upright in a dry riverbed, the CHP said.

The remaining September tour dates have been postponed.

“Josh Turner and his road family have suffered a devastating loss,” Universal Music Group Nashville said in a statement. “Please keep the crew, band and Josh in your thoughts and prayers.”
