Member of Mixtapes leaves Warped Tour due to a car accident

Contributed by DesertBurst92. Posted by sam on Monday, July 28, 2014 at 12:00 PM (EDT)
MixtapesRyan Rockwell of Mixtapes will not continue with the band for Warped Tour. Ryan got into a serious car crash and got a concussion and other injuries from the accident.

Hey everyone Ryan here. Two days ago at a warped Tour stop I was in a car and got cut off and got into a pretty serious car wreck. Aside from some bad injuries I also got a concussion which I didn't know yet. Fast forward to a day later and I was driving and didn't realize the concussion and basically blacked out and hit a curb/tree so basically I'm an idiot. My doctor and many people at warped tour said not to play because I'm in pretty bad shape right now so as of now Maura, Paul and Boone are playing without me and getting some friends to fill in, I hope to rest for a few days and come back and finish. I go to my doctor tomorrow at home and will let everyone know, everyone please come to warped, sing along, and thanks for all the awesome support, I will see you soon.

The band will continue to play the tour in his absence.
