Portland band The Prids in vanwreck on tour!

Portland rock band The Prids has a pretty bad van wreck in California Sunday night on their way to a show in LA.

"A tire blew, they lost control of the van and it rolled several times. David was airlifted from the scene of the crash, he suffered a broken collar bone, broken ribs and has 6 staples in his head. Chris broke his arm, and they are waiting for MRI results to determine if he's sustained a spinal injury. Maile has a broken vertebra and toe and a severe cut with stitches on her knee. Joey broke ribs, Mistina suffered a concussion, and as far as I know Kristin is in similar shape. As of late tonight, everyone but Chris has been released from the hospital, and they are staying at a hotel in Fresno."

As of this morning Chris was released from the hospital, but David went back during the night because he was vomiting blood. He's on a morphine drip and stable. Friends are picking up the band members and any equipment that survived the wreck. Their van is totaled and they are going to have pretty hefty hospital bills. Fundraisers are being planned and anyone that wants to donate to the band via Paypal is encouraged to do so to:
