Boston’s favorite Celtic punks Dropkick Murphyshave canceled a show in Tulsa, Oklahoma after their tour bus struck a man on a Texas highway.

The band was traveling from its San Antonio show to the Dallas Airport when their bus struck a pedestrian around 3 a.m. just north of Austin. Police, according to the band’s Facebook page, suspect a suicide.

The band wrote in a post:

“We were left with a driver that has been severely shaken up by the accident and a bus too damaged to continue onto Tulsa. Throughout the early morning hours we tried every possible way to get our band and gear to Tulsa but we’ve simply run out of time.”

Tickets for the show at Cain’s Ballroom will be refunded.
