Three of the country singer's band members were injured in the bus accident taking place on Interstate 30 outside Sulphur Springs, Texas.

Willie Nelson puts a break on his tour as three of his band members were hurt in a bus accident. The touring vehicle spun out of control when a storm hit East Texas on Saturday, November 22 dawn, crashing into a bridge pillar.

According to Texas Department of Public Safety spokeswoman Sylvia Jennings, seven people were in the bus including the driver who tried to maneuver his way through the heavy wind and rain. The crash occurred 80 miles east of Dallas, on Interstate 30 outside Sulphur Springs. The accident is believed to have happened "due to icy conditions on the road".

The injured band members were rushed into hospital, though the singer's camp said no one was seriously injured. "No one suffered serious injuries," a statement on Nelson's website said. "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."

Nelson, who was not in the bus, has postponed the four remaining dates in November and will resume the tour as scheduled in December. The canceled stops include Robinsonville, Mississippi, on Saturday, and Jackson, Mississippi, on Sunday.
