Opeth collision result of suicide
It appears that the Opeth bus accident we reported on yesterday was actually the result of a suicide. Opeth's Mikael Åkerfeldt explains: "I just got a text from [Martin] Mendez who says that the driver of the other car (who made the U-turn) that our bus crashed into, sadly passed away from his injuries. On top of that it seems as if it was a deliberate death-stunt from his side as the police had found a suicide-letter in the car-wreck. "This is just getting more odd and scary, I tell ya. I've no idea who he was but I have to say our condoleances goes out to his family and loved ones anyways either though we don't have a name at this point. I'm kinda lost for words here."
