If I Fail Vocalist Colin Michael Dead at 30 After Tour Van Hit by Suspected Drunk Driver
Colin Michael Mulhern, vocalist of Colorado rock band If I Fail, has died following an automobile incident with a suspected drunk driver. FOX 40 reports that an SUV rear-ended the tour van that Mulhern was traveling in at roughly 2:40 a.m. early Monday (Aug. 27) on Interstate 5 in California. The vehicle contact reportedly sent the van into a center median, which led to it barrel-rolling off the road.
Mulhern was on tour selling merchandise with fellow Colorado band Short Fuse 59. They had just finished their tour and were headed back to Colorado. He was 30 years old.
According to the California Highway Patrol, alcohol and drugs were found in the driver's car. She was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence and was not injured in the incident. They have not released her name.
Members of Short Fuse were also injured in the crash. At the time of our report, drummer Patrick Carney remains in a coma. If I Fail released a statement on Mulhern's passing, which included a GoFundMe for Carney's medical expenses.
