fucking hell, this is awful.
"i think the van driver might have taken their band name a little too literally."
It's a crazy story.
At the moment, just hoping the young lady is getting the appropriate care.

wow, read the whole article. what a crazy awful situation. total nightmare for everyone involved.
fuck whoever was driving. how do you drive for 5 fucking blocks with someone underneath you? how do you not realize that you hit someone in the first place?
disgusting and horrible, wouldn't wish either side of this on anybody
looks like he may have been impaired, if so i hope the piece of shit rots in prison. i don't see how you can fucking hit someone and drag them for 5 blocks before noticing without being fucked up as shit.
im voting for whoever proposes a wall between the states and canada

honestly the more i think about it, how did no one in the van not notice? and if he was as fucked up as he had to have been to do this, why would they have let him drive? man i love OWTH but this whole thing is fucked.
just some conjecture here but if they were indeed intoxicated they probably DID notice (you dont just fucking hit shit with a car and not notice), panicked and tried to hit n run, then were forced to stop when they realised she was dragging and they couldn't exactly run from the terrible situation.
oh god that would make this so much worse
i guess we'll see, but the article says buds was intoxicated on the scene and i doubt he decided to hit the pub after pulling over and phoning the police
iirc he was only with the band for a short time and hadn't been a member for a while. OWTH have like a revolving door of people aside from Ryan
A revolving door of manslaughter
A manslaughtering revolving door: A Memoir of Off With Their Heads
yeah basically at this point
damn this is sad
Hope no one in this band is ever allowed into canada again
What a bunch of negligent idiotic dickheads.

CTV News cameras captured a Vancouver police officer with a breathalyzer in hand interviewing a man who looks like the band’s bassist, Robbie Swartwood, behind police tape as dozens of other officers closed several blocks of Hastings to investigate.
There is also a picture in the article that looks a lot like him, I just hope he wasn't drunk.

so murder's a trend with this band...
God that fucking sucks
Just after midnight on Saturday October 12, Off With Their Head’s bassist, Robbie Swartwood was involved in a gruesome accident which resulted in a young woman’s severe obstruction to her face. In a statement from Sergeant Aaron Roed of the Vancouver Police Department, it was confirmed what many social media speculators have already estimated. There is video evidence of Desiree Evancio (24) crossing the street between the band’s van and trailer while at a stop. This went unnoticed by the driver, and she was then dragged for several city blocks once the vehicle resumed motion. While authorities quickly made the scene, early witness reports have described a trail of blood down the street, which made it apparent this was no ordinary accident.
so she walked between the van and the trailer, the van started moving on her, and she got pinned under the trailer. i can understand how no one in the van knew she was back there. this whole situation is so unfortunate.
Yeah, it's shitty. The pedestrian makes one bad decision, walking between a van and trailer, and now has affected so many people.
Will be interesting to hear OWTH's side of the story, when everything settles down.
ok, so this seems more like an legit accident then. it's so unfortunate tho, rip
regardless, i sure do hope robbie wasn't impaired and behind the wheel.
Holy fuck that is tragic but how fucking stupid do you have to be to walk between the van and the trailer
Imagine witnessing this. Sick
i mean i could see if she was intoxicated or something and it was parallel parked along a street or something. idk man this is all really bizarre and sad.
Sounds like they were just at a stop sign or a light tho
oh yeah you're right, wtf
Yeah seems like this was kind of her own fault, but still no one deserves this shit

Obviously I feel bad for the lady but that's just such a stupid thing to do and now this dudes life is basically ruined and all the people who witnessed her being dragged are scarred for life
