Salsa singer hurt in accident in Colombia
Bogota: Popular Puerto Rican salsa singer Andy Montanez was injured Monday in an accident in Colombia after giving a concert in the city of Valledupar, one of his representatives reported.
Montanez suffered "some minor injuries" and was admitted to a medical clinic in the town of Fundacion, his representative in Colombia, Alvaro Gomez Cuartas, told Caracol television.
The salsa singer was traveling from Valledupar to Barranquilla along with eight members of his musical group, including his son Harold Montanez, when the vehicle`s front tyre blew and the driver lost control.
The vehicle went off the road and crashed into a tree, Montanez`s representative said.
"They were rather battered with the crash, but they`re not very bad injuries," Gomez said.
The artist was returning to Barranquilla from a concert he had given in Valledupar while on a brief tour of Colombia.
