Photos released by the production show that the vehicle was completely destroyed.

Kevin “Noodles” Wasserman, guitarist for the band, also opened up about the incident and shared a video in which the car appears in flames in the middle of the road.

“No one was injured. Everyone got out of the vehicle unscathed. Unfortunately, around half of our crew lost their belongings in the fire, including luggage, computers and passports. But it could have been much worse,” Noodles wrote.

“The group and I are grateful and relieved that everyone involved is safe. No one knows exactly what started the fire yet, but something big and heavy hit the SUV, possibly a hitch of trailer loosened, and within seconds the vehicle burst into flames.”

In the text, the guitarist always claims that the team did not even have time to get the car off the highway and stop on the side of the road.

“Our entire team works hard to make sure we look our best when we go on stage. Their journeys and workdays are always longer and harder than ours, and we can’t thank them enough for all they do. watching them have to go through something like this is heartbreaking and scary. I’m so glad they’re all okay.
