Slash‘s Conspirators guitarist Frank Sidoris and his wife, Allie, are currently recovering after being involved in a “serious car accident” over the weekend while traveling to Los Angeles.
Allie suffered fractures in the L1 vertebrae on her spine and in her ring finger; Frank was not seriously injured.
“It was a truly traumatic experience, but at least we are alive and Allie’s injuries are mendable through surgery and months of physical therapy,” Frank wrote in an Instagram post. “Her surgeon is one of the best there is and considering my wife’s strength and how she’s been an absolute superhero through everything she’s gone through, I know she’ll be able to bounce back with time.”
“I’m hopeful the road ahead won’t be a long one,” he adds. “Thank you to each and every one of you for reaching out and for all of the amazing support you’ve given us over the years during the hardest times of our lives, it means the world.”
In a follow-up Instagram Story, Frank shares that Allie’s surgery was “very successful” and that she’s now “awake in recovery.”
Sidoris has played in Slash’s touring solo band since 2012, and contributed to the most recent Conspirators album, 2018’s Living the Dream. He’s also a member of Mammoth WVH, Wolfgang Van Halen‘s solo project.
