ArnoCorps was riding high atop the cult following they had gained, until early 1991. It was on February 28, 1991 that the band, who still adorned their trademark dress of combat fatigues for good luck, was on their way to play a club in Poland, when their renovated milk truck was forced to swerve off the road by a stubborn cow and careened into the nearby woods. The drummer, Oskar Mordsding, and bassist Johann Kranausleger, were killed immediately when the truck struck a large tree and rolled down a small embankment. Lead singer Holzfueur and badly injured guitarist Wilhelm "Gummiblase" Beil, were thrown from the vehicle and survived the crash.

Though Holzfeuer had suffered a broken ankle, he set off in search of help. Upon reaching a nearby farmhouse, Holzfeuer passed out before relaying to the farmer what had happened. The farmer and his wife spent two days and nights nursing the young man back to health. When Holzfeuer awoke, he told local officials of the accident. When an extensive search of the area described was made, all that was found was a sorrowful sight. The truck had been wrecked beyond recognition and the one survivor they'd expected to find had, possibly due to the pain from shattering his pelvic bone, had killed himself by swallowing the E-string of his beloved guitar. An immediate investigation by the authorities cleared the members of ArnoCorps of any wrongdoing or wrecklessness. The converted milk truck, however, disappeared from a nearby garage before any automotive analysis could be made.
