On Friday July 10th, CI Records’ artists Texas In July and An Early Ending were involved in a major accident while traveling to perform in Springfield, MO on a tour stop. The van containing both bands and their tour manager was struck when a driver crossed the center line with her vehicle, after allegedly suffering a fatal heart attack, thus initiating the accident.

All the passengers suffered differing levels of injury, some minor but manageable, while others were airlifted to a hospital 55 miles away. Miraculously, the only fatality in the accident was the driver of the vehicle that initiated the accident. However, three members of An Early Ending and the tour manager for both bands remain hospitalized.

While full recoveries are expected, the physical and emotional trauma experienced by all involved is extensive, and we ask for everyone’s thoughts and prayers for all involved and their families in this difficult time.

Anyone wishing to make a donation to help out with medical costs, travel expenses for family members needing to travel, or replacing valuable personal effects lost in the accident may do so by PayPal: aeetijdonations@gmail.com

The members of Texas in July and some members of an Early Ending will be returning home in the next day or two. Those that remain hospitalized are in the loving companionship of family, and the extraordinary care of the St. John's hospital in Springfield, MO.

Thank you, from the families of both bands.
