Not much happens in Amsterdam, NY. It snows up there for the most part, which is the reason why Rivers Cuomo and his bus went off the road in Upstate NY this weekend. The lead singer of Weezer got minor injuries, and his family on board the bus didn’t get injured. Maybe the snow gods were angry that Weezer came out with their own version of the Snuggie? All joking aside, it’s good that they didn’t get seriously injured.

Glen, New York (CNN) — The lead singer of the rock band Weezer was involved in a bus accident Sunday that left him and another passenger in an upstate New York hospital.

Rivers Cuomo, 40, complained of rib pain and was transferred, along with one other passenger, to St. Mary’s Hospital in Amsterdam, New York.

Cuomo’s wife, daughter, and a fifth passenger on the bus were uninjured. The bus was traveling from Toronto, Ontario, to Boston, Massachusetts, for a show Monday night at the Agganis Arena at Boston University.
