"We are all pretty much fine -- all walking and talking and all of that -- just a little sore and a little shaken," the group explained in a MySpace post titled 'We're OK.'
"After stopping at a fruit stand at about 3pm today," the post continued, "we got back on the highway headed towards Toronto. At about 3:15, on the other side of the highway, a semi-truck moved into the left lane, not seeing the car that was there, and sent the car flying out of control over the meridian and right at us. The car hit us in the back and sent us flying onto our side, at which point we slid quite a ways down the road. Everyone was wearing a seatbelt except for [band leader] Dave [Longstreth] and [drummer] Brian [McOmber], but they and all of the rest of us luckily came out fine!"
"The whole thing was quite surreal; there were hugs and tears when we climbed out of the van. We all feel very fortunate right now to be walking around. Sorry about the canceled shows in Toronto and Montreal! We were really looking forward to coming up there again, but we will make it up to you as soon as possible!"
The Dirty Projectors -- rounded out by singer/guitarist Amber Coffman, multi-instrumentalist Angel Deradoorian, bassist Nat Baldwin and singer Haley Dekle -- were touring in support of their new album 'Bitte Orca,' which dropped on June 9. If all goes according to plan, the band are slated to resume touring with a West Coast run that gets underway in Vancouver, BC on July 2, and wraps a week later in San Diego.
