LAMB OF GOD’s RANDY BLYTHE ‘Almost Killed’ In Road Accident Over The Weekend Photo’s Of Wreckage

Randy Blythe says that he was “almost killed” over the weekend by an allegedly distracted truck driver who “plowed into” the trailer of the chase vehicle the LAMB OF GOD frontman and his friends were traveling in.

According to Blythe, the accident took place on Saturday, July 9 when he and his companions had parked on the side of a two-lane country road in Oklahoma.

In a series of Instagram posts, Randy addressed the driver of the truck directly when recalling details of the incident. He wrote: “I watched as you plowed into our chase vehicle’s trailer — I saw your truck hit it and fly into the air. Like a slow-motion horror movie scene, you sprouted deadly wings and flew high into the air towards us before crashing onto the road a few feet away. You had hit another truck before you even crashed into our trailer.

“We were in the middle of nowhere, on wide-open road, with a clear view for miles. How did you not see us? How fast were you going to run into two vehicles and still fly into the air like that?

“We were stopped and completely off the road, the other truck behind us that you hit was going maybe 3 mph, maximum. We were all aware of each other — somehow, you were not.”

LAMB OF GOD is continuing to play shows in support of its latest album, “VII: Sturm Und Drang”, which was released in July 2015 via Epic in the U.S. and Nuclear Blast Entertainment in all territories outside of North America. The CD was once again produced and mixed by Josh Wilbur with engineering by Wilbur, Nick Rowe and Kyle McAulay, and was recorded at NRG Recording Studios in North Hollywood, California and Suburban Soul Studios in Torrance, California.

LAMB OF GOD‘s third album, “Ashes Of The Wake”, which came out in 2004 via Epic, was officially certified gold in February by the RIAA (Recording Industry Association of America) for sales in excess of a 500,000 copies.
