Gary Numan has been left ''utterly devastated'' and ''filled with sadness'' after his tour bus struck a 91-year-old man in Cleveland who died.
Gary Numan has been left ''utterly devastated'' after his tour bus reportedly struck and killed an elderly man.
The 60-year-old singer was forced to cancel his concert at Cleveland House of Blues in Cleveland, Ohio, on Monday night (24.09.18), after a ''terrible tragedy'', in which a 91-year-old guy died.
In a statement posted on his Twitter account, Gary wrote: ''We are all utterly devastated by the fatal accident involving our tour bus earlier today. Everyone 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. At the moment all we can think about are the people affected by this terrible tragedy and to them we send all our love.''
He also tweeted: ''We are all utterly devastated by the fatal accident involving our tour bus in Cleveland earlier today.''
According to News 5 Cleveland, police said the guy was pushing a cart when he was struck as the 'Cars' hitmaker's bus was making a right turn, and he was pronounced dead at the scene.
The driver was not arrested and officials said he did not appear to be impaired, but they are continuing their investigation into what happened.
According to The Blast, witnesses from a nearby church administered last rites to the victim.
It's not known if Gary was on board the bus at the time of the incident.
A message on the House of Blues Twitter account read: ''Due to unforeseen circumstances, tonight's show with Gary Numan at House of Blues Cleveland has been cancelled.
Refunds will be made available at the point of purchase.''
In 2011, Gary was involved in another bus-related incident when a driver attempted to overtake his double decker only to crash into the vehicle in east Sussex, south east England.
The 'Down in the Park' hitmaker was on the top deck of the bus at the time.
He said: ''We felt a thud and the bus stopped really quickly. People were thrown to the floor.
''I was on the top deck and saw this little gold car the same height as me going past the window.
''When the car stopped we could see the woman putting the car into neutral before getting out as if it was something that happened every day.
''We waited for the police to arrive so she wasn't on her own.''
