Deftones bassist Chi Cheng has been hospitalised after being involved in what singer Chino Moreno called a “terrible” car crash.

The incident, which took place on Monday (November 3), resulted in Cheng being taken to the intensive care unit at a hospital in northern California, where he remains in a “serious, but stable” condition according to Moreno.

Writing on the Deftones’ blog, Moreno asked fans to pray for Cheng.

“It deeply saddens me to inform you all that our brother Chi Cheng was involved in a terrible car accident last night. He is currently in a northern California hospital in a serious, but stable condition,” he explained.

“I am on my way up north right now to be by his side along with the rest of our bandmates and family. Chi is one of the strongest people I know, and I’m praying that his strength will get him through this. Please say a prayer for him as well.”

The Deftones are in the process of recording new material for their next release titled Eros.  The album is set for release in 2009.
