On the early morning of August 20, both touring acts Foliage (from California) and Processions (from Texas), were involved in a serious highway accident in San Antonio, TX after performing earlier in the night at Hotel Vegas in Austin, TX on August 19.
A driver with plenty of open freeway ahead, likely intoxicated, stopped completely in the highway lane in front of our vehicle causing us to brake suddenly, spin out, and crash into the freeway median. Our vehicle was totaled (with two missing tires as well) and the driver who caused the accident fled the scene.
The vehicle was a total loss and our U-Haul attached to our van was totaled as well. Inside of the U-Haul contained all of Processions gear, mostly vintage, who had generously shared with Foliage on their 2019 Texas dates.
We are asking for your help in this time of great frustration and pain as we seriously almost lost our lives in this event. We are so grateful to be alive and with minimal damages (whiplash, joint pain, bruising).
Thank you all so much, seriously.
- Manuel Joseph Walker (Foliage), Phillipe Alvarez (Processions)
