She said the most injured person in the crash was the driver of the lorry that hit the band's tour bus, which was parked partly on the road and hard shoulder.

The New Jersey band were due to play in Krakow on Sunday, but the gig has been cancelled.

They are next scheduled to play in Leipzig, Germany, on Tuesday.
