CLEVELAND — Gary Numan’s tour bus was involved in a deadly pedestrian accident in downtown Cleveland on Monday, according to a representative from Coast to Coast Coach.
Cleveland police say at about 12:40 p.m., the bus was making a right turn from the southbound lane of East 9th Street into the westbound lane of Superior Avenue when it struck a 91-year-old man who was walking southbound within the crosswalk from the northwest curb of East 9th Street and Superior Avenue.
There have been no arrests at this time; police say the investigation is ongoing.
Gary Numan, best known for his 1979 hit “Cars,” was in town to perform at the House of Blues. The venue cancelled the event following the crash.
Numan tweeted a statement saying, “We are all utterly devastated by the fatal accident involving our tour bus in Cleveland earlier today. Every one of us is filled with a sadness that made it impossible to even consider playing our show this evening, and out of respect it would have been entirely wrong.”
