Zac Hanson of the pop music band Hanson is recovering following a motorcycle crash in Oklahoma this week.
The 33-year-old Hanson said in posts on social media and the Tulsa-based band’s website that he is recovering after suffering a broken collarbone, three broken ribs and a cracked scapula.
Hanson said he was able to walk away from the Tulsa crash thanks to “good quality protective gear.”
Details of the crash were not revealed, but Hanson said he was preparing for a cross-country ride. Hanson said he will be replaced as drummer by “good friend Dash Hutton” during the next few weeks on tour but will sing.
Hanson is the youngest of three brothers who formed the band in the early 1990s. The band is best-known for the song “MMMBop.”
Wednesday I was involved in a wreck on my motorcycle while preparing for an upcoming cross-country ride. Though I ended up with three broken ribs, a broken collarbone, and a cracked scapula, nothing is injured that won’t heal with a little rest and time, and a healthy dose of gaming! Thankfully with good quality protective gear, I was able to walk away, even if very slowly with the help of Isaac, Taylor, and a few of a Tulsa fire fighters –. We will not be canceling any concerts. Instead, I will be handing over the drum sticks to our good friend Dash Hutton @dashdrumdude for the next few weeks, and I will be giving my full attention to singing while my shoulder is on the mend. Thank you for all the thoughts and prayers, hope to see many of you soon! -Z #youcantstopus
