The Prids were in a pretty nasty accident last evening just outside of Fresno.
I’m notorious for worrying about everybody I know who’s out there touring, and this is exactly why. It brings back too many memories of the Exploding Hearts.
They’re in Fresno at the hospital, have no money, and mounting medical bills from serious injuries. If you’ve got even a few dollars laying around, please help them out.

Our dear friends The Prids – David, Mistina, Joey and Maile – and two of their significant others – Kristin and Chris – were in a serious accident early Sunday evening while en route to Los Angeles on tour.
A tire blew and they lost control of the van and it rolled several times. David was airlifted from the scene of the crash, he suffered a broken collar bone, broken ribs and has 6 staples in his head. Chris broke his arm, and they are waiting for MRI results to determine if he’s sustained a spinal injury. Maile has a broken vertebra and toe and a severe cut with stitches on her knee. Joey broke ribs, Mistina suffered a concussion, and as far as I know Kristin is in similar shape. As of late last night, everyone but Chris had been released from the hospital, and they are staying at a hotel in Fresno.
A special paypal account has been set up to help out and donate directly to The Prids. They need help getting home and paying their hospital bills. If you can’t help out monetarily, please repost this info on your blogs, etc. Thanks!
