THE VALORY MUSIC CO. artist JUSTIN MOORE’S band and crew was involved in a fatal traffic accident this past SATURDAY, MAY 12th near MATTOON, IL. Their tour bus was hit from behind by a car driven by JOSEPH TAYLOR around 6p (CT). After the initial accident, TAYLOR stepped out of his car to look at the damage. He then was hit by another vehicle and was pronounced dead at the scene. MOORE was not on board at the time of the accident.
MOORE later TWEETED, "Thankful my band and crew guys are all good. They got hit by a car this morning in their bus. Prayers go out to the guy who lost his life and his family. You never know man. You have to be prepared to meet GOD today, 'cause it may be your last."
The traffic on INTERSTATE 57 at ILLINOIS ROUTE 16 was re-routed for several hours because of the accident.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to TAYLOR’S family.
