Canadian rockers KILLER DWARFS were involved in a serious crash following their performance at the Rocklahoma festival this past weekend. The accident took place just before 2:00 Monday afternoon (May 26) near a construction zone along interstate 70 in Indiana when the band’s pickup truck — driven by KILLER DWARFS bassist Johnny Fenton — pulling a box trailer failed to slow or stop and hit a vehicle and another pickup truck. The second truck then hit a SUV.
KILLER DWARFS vocalist Russ Graham was airlifted to Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis for head injuries while Fenton, drummer Darrell Millar and guitarist Gerry Finn are at a hotel with some cuts and bruises.
KILLER DWARFS was formed in Toronto in 1981 and continues to rock, showing no signs of slowing down. From its first single, the anthem “Keep The Spirit Alive”, to its 2013 album “STaRT @ oNe”, the band’s timeline includes extensive MTV airplay, recording for major labels, racking up a few Juno nominations and playing some of the largest venues throughout the world.
