The good news is, none of the members of Chicago hard-rock troop Disturbed were hurt yesterday morning when one of the buses in their caravan was involved in a minor accident along Interstate 95 in Florence County, South Carolina. The bad news is someone else was hurt and taken to a nearby hospital for treatment.
According to a SCnow.com report, the bus — which was transporting members of the band's crew — ran off the highway after blowing a tire. The vehicle slid down an embankment before coming to a stop.
A total of eight people were on the bus at the time, and one of them sustained minor injuries, the nature of which was not disclosed. None of the band's members were among the bus' passengers.
The bus' driver, Fred Huffman, told the site, "By the grace of God, we all survived." At the time of the mishap, the bus was making its way toward Virginia Beach, Virginia, where Disturbed is set to perform tonight as part of this summer's Rockstar Energy Mayhem festival.

All-Star Game to be played at New York's legendary Yankee Stadium, we here at MTV News' New York offices have been stricken with baseball fever. It's hard to escape baseball this week. No matter where you turn, there's some sort of reminder that the fastest fielders, the strongest arms and the biggest bats in the game are all here, to ensure home-field advantage for their respective league in the fall classic.

If music had an all-star game, who would we want to see in the dugout? After careful consideration, here are some of our picks — and feel free to let us know who'd go in your team in the comments section below. So, here goes.
