According to "We Are Messengers," over the weekend their vehicle collided with a car that was stopped on the highway with no lights on.
"The driver of the bus said as the vehicles were coming to a stop he noticed flames on his left side. He yelled at everyone in the bus to get out," police spokesman Capt. Mike Ireland reported.
The other vehicle caught fire as well. The members of "We Are Messengers" escaped before their bus was destroyed, but the person inside of the other vehicle did not.
"I'm heartbroken," said vocalist Darren Mulligan in a Facebook video after the accident, asking for prayers for the family of the man who died in the crash.
"We should have all been dead. But the Lord is good. God's still good, even in the tragedy that we've all been a part of, God is still good," Mulligan said.
The band also posted a picture of a page from one of their partially burned Bibles that survived the fire. It's an excerpt from Romans 5 about peace, joy, and suffering:
"Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand." (Photo via Facebook)
"We rejoice in the hope of the glory of God. Not only so, but we also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope."
