Many Christian music fans are aware of the news from this past Sunday that the band We Are Messengers was involved in a crash in their tour bus resulting in a catastrophic fire and total loss of all equipment and personal possessions. There have been a few social media posts from the band since that time, and today have released the official statement through their label, Word Entertainment:

On Sunday, March 26, 2017, it is reported that just after 4:15 a.m., police were notified that a car with no lights on was stopped and stationary in the right-hand lane of I-75 North just south of Atlanta, GA. Sometime after that, the We Are Messengers bus traveling in the darkness of night northbound on I-75 attempted to avoid the unlit stopped car, but there was a collision of the two vehicles. Both vehicles erupted in flames and came to a stop on the left side of the north-bound lanes of I-75. The members of We Are Messengers escaped their burning vehicle before it was destroyed while the person inside the stopped vehicle did not survive.

The members of We Are Messengers pray for peace for the family of the person who died on the scene. They are also deeply grateful for the support of so many in this time.
