The truck flipped over outside the Swedish city of Gothenburg, where Madonna is slated to perform on Wednesday. The accident caused three passenger cars to collide with each other, but luckily none of the drivers were hurt. The driver of Madonna’s truck was taken to a hospital, but apparently he’s not severely injured. A tour organizer says the concert will still go on as planned. One blog post on the subject contains this extremely Swedish update: “Traffic in the southbound direction is redirected via Ikea.”
