Willie Nelson's band members hurt in bus wreck

November 23, 2013 12:00:00 AM PST
Three of Willie Nelson's band members were injured when their bus plowed into a bridge pillar in East Texas in the rain.

According to the Texas Department of Public Safety, Nelson was not aboard the bus when it crashed at about 3:30 a.m. CT Saturday on Interstate 30 near Sulphur Springs, 75 miles northeast of Dallas.

As a result of his band members' injuries, Nelson has postponed his four remaining November tour dates to December. The affected concerts were slated for Robinsonville and Jackson, Miss.; Fayetteville, Ark.; and Lafayette, La.

Trooper Sylvia Jennings says seven people were on the westbound bus, including the driver who was dealing with wet roads and high winds.
