A tour bus accident early Sunday injured Weezer frontman Rivers Cuomo severely enough to force the cancellation of the band’s remaining December tour dates. Cuomo, who remains hospitalized, suffered three cracked ribs, “painful internal damage” and a lower leg injury; band assistant Sarah Kim fractured a lower vertebrae and two ribs; the bus’ other passengers — Cuomo’s wife, two-year-old daughter and her nanny — and driver were not injured.

The tour bus skidded on ice and careened across several lanes of traffic on I-90 in upstate New York, crashing over a guardrail and into a muddy ditch.
