Rivers Cuomo injured in bus crash

Rivers Cuomo, lead singer of Weezer, was hospitalized after an early morning bus crash in Upstate New York this morning.

Cuomo, 40, was taken to St. Mary’s Hospital near Amsterdam, NY, after complaining of “rib pain” following a crash that occurred on the Thruway around 7:30 am today. Another passenger was also transported to the hospital, but Cuomo’s wife and infant daughter were not injured in the crash.

The driver of the bus said the vehicle skidded on some ice while heading east, and after sliding across lanes, the bus came to a stop in a ditch. The area got about two inches of snow last night, but road conditions this morning were generally wet and not snowy. Neither drugs nor alcohol were thought to be factors in the crash.
