Aerosmith drummer Joey Kramer narrowly escaped serious injury when his Ferrari convertible caught on fire at a gas station not too far from his Boston-area home.
Kramer suffered minor burns to his hands, arms and one leg after a leak in the gas tank hose caused the fuel to ignite. The accident happened around 6 PM Wednesday as Kramer was gassing up near the town of Scituate on Route 3 south of Boston.
The Ferrari was destroyed.Kramer sustained the most serious burn to his arm and hand as he shielded his face from the flames. He was treated at a hospital emergency ward and released. Band manager Wendy Laister told reporters that the drummer is expected to take about two weeks to recover and confirmed that he will not miss any tour dates.
Aerosmith is on a break until mid-August at which time they resume their U.S. roadtrip with shows on the east coast beginning August 14 in Raleigh, North Carolina.
