David Garibaldi in critical condition after accident
« on: January 13, 2017, 11:05 AM »
David Garibaldi is in critical condition at Highland Hospital after being struck by an Amtrak train passing by Yoshi's in Oakland, CA. The accident occurred around 7:30pm Thursday, January 12, 2017 — just before Tower of Power was scheduled to perform that evening.  Police stated that a group of four people tried to cross the railroad tracks — while the warning guard arms were still down — toward Yoshi’s after a freight train slowly chugged by. Unfortunately the pedestrians didn’t see the Amtrak train traveling about 25 mph from the opposite direction on another track. Two were able to jump out of the way, but Garibaldi and current bassist, Marc Van Wageningen, were not. Both men are in critical condition but have regained consciousness.

Please keep these two musicians in your thoughts and prayers!
