Ames, Iowa - Cast and crew of "Dancing with the Stars: Live! Light Up The Night" are OK after being involved in a 50-car pile-up caused by severe weather conditions in Iowa, officials said.

Iowa State Patrol Sgt. Nathan Ludwig said roughly 50 vehicles were involved in a weather-related crash on Interstate 35 in Ames on Monday.

About half a dozen people were critically injured, and at least one person died as a result of the wreck.

A spokesperson for "Dancing with the Stars: Live! Light Up The Night" said one of the tour buses transporting cast and crew of the show was involved in the accident.

All cast and crew members were said to be "fine," with some recovering from minor injuries, the press release stated.
