The crash occurred in highway 30 near Sulpher Springs, Texas when the driver lost control and crashed in to a bridge pillar. Five members of the band were on-board and there were injuries. .
Nelson’s website said "no one suffered serious injuries. Paul English injured his ankle, Billy English suffered a bruised hip and crew member Tom Hawkins has a cracked rib. The other family members on the bus are sore but everyone is expected to recover fully."
The accident happened around 3:30 am CT as the driver was fighting high winds, heavy rain, and icy road conditions.
Three of the injuries required hospitalization and Nelson has cancelled the remainder of his November concert schedule to allow recovery time. The website says the tour will resume in December.
