Dropkick Murphys tour bus involved in deadly crash

Band said they were headed to Dallas to drop a member off at the airport

ROUND ROCK, Texas (KXAN) — Police say a man is dead after he walked in front of a bus on Interstate 35 in Round Rock early Sunday morning. While police could not confirm who owned the vehicle, the rock band “Dropkick Murphys” posted on Facebook that their bus was involved in the crash while traveling from a show in San Antonio.

Round Rock police responded about 3 a.m. Sunday to the 2700 block of I-35 between SH-45 and Hesters Crossing Road and found 23-year-old Dalton Lane Clark. He died at the scene.

The Dropkick Murphys said they were headed to Dallas to drop a band member off at the airport when the crash happened. They were scheduled to perform in Tulsa Sunday night but canceled the show following the crash.

We were left with a driver that has been severely shaken up by the accident and a bus too damaged to continue onto Tulsa.Throughout the early morning hours we tried every possible way to get our band and gear to Tulsa but we’ve simply run out of time. As much as it pains us to miss a show and we truly apologize for it, we’d like to stop and acknowledge that a man has lost his life. Please keep him and any family he might have in your prayers.

Round Rock police are still investigating the crash and say the driver of the bus was not cited for any traffic violations.

The band says everyone who purchased tickets for Sunday’s show at Cain’s Ballroom in Tulsa will receive a full refund. “Tulsa: thanks for your support and understanding,” the band wrote. “We will see you soon!”
