Shania Twain’s crew was hospitalized after her tour bus crashed in Canada.
According to the reports, several members of the singers were rushed to the hospital on Wednesday just after 7 a.m. after Twain’s tour bus rolled off Highway 1 near Wolseley, Saskatchewan, in Canada.
While the circumstances of the crash remain unclear, it was reported that another vehicle, a truck, was also found at the side of the road near the crashed bus.
A total of 13 people were taken to the hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries after the incident on the icy highway.
It was later revealed that Shania’s crew was traveling as part of their Queen of Me tour. The singer’s reps also confirmed that both the bus and the truck were part of the tour.
“Members of the production crew who require medical attention have been taken to nearby hospitals,” Maverick Management confirmed.
“We are incredibly thankful to the emergency services teams for their quick response and ongoing support. We ask for patience as we look after our touring family.”
The accident came just a day before Twain’s scheduled concert in Saskatoon. It is yet to be decided whether the concert will go on as planned or be postponed.
