All members of Viola Beach and manager killed in car crash


All four members of indie band Viola Beach and their manager were killed in a car crash in Stockholm on February 13 morning.


The band were headed to a gig in Guildford, England when the vehicle they were traveling in veered off a bridge and into a canal.

According to police, the bridge they were on has a section that periodically rises to allow boats to pass through underneath. Lights, warning signs and barriers are used to indicate when the road is impassable. Inspector Martin Bergholm said: "For some reason, the car drove through the barriers and crashed down into the canal."
