HATE ETERNAL: IN VEHICLE CRASH, TOUR STOPPED
Hate Eternal were involved in a van accident on Saturday night in Wisconsin en route to a show on their headlining tour with Dying Fetus, Kataklysm, and Into Eternity.
Hate Eternal's van slid on a patch of black ice on the highway and hit a tree, causing their trailer to swing around and impact the van. No other vehicles were involved in the accident, though there were other accidents on the same stretch of road that night.
The accident totaled Hate Eternal's van. Frontman Erik Rutan sustained injuries, including whiplash and a cracked vertebra. The other members of the band and the tour manager walked away without injuries.
Rutan has been released from the hospital and will be returning home to Florida to recover. Rutan made this statement: "All the shows on this tour were great. We apologize to the fans and the promoters and we will be back as soon as possible to make up for this."
Any messages for Erik and Hate Eternal can be emailed to email@example.com.
