Motley Crue truck involved in fatal accident

MOTLEY CRUE's final tour has been marred by a traffic accident involving a crew member hauling the band's equipment to a gig in Alabama.

One of the band’s 18-wheeler trucks jackknifed just before dawn on Friday morning (15Aug14) in Jefferson County, Alabama and collided with 47-year-old Wayne Marsh's vehicle.

Marsh died at the scene and the driver of Motley Crue’s truck was transported to a local hospital. The I-65 freeway was briefly shut down following the accident.

The group had to postpone a show in Detroit, Michigan in 2012 after truck carrying equipment flipped on a highway in Ohio, but Friday night's concert in Birmingham went on as scheduled.

The truck driver's name had no been released at press time.
