Members of country legend Willie Nelson's band have been injured in a crash. A tour bus transporting the musicians through Texas spun out of control in a storm just before dawn on Saturday (23Nov13). Nelson was not a passenger on the bus, but three of the five bandmates onboard were hospitalised. The accident has prompted the singer/songwriter to postpone the remaining four dates of his November (13) tour, including shows in Mississippi on Saturday (23Nov13) and Sunday (24Nov13), but all shows in December (13) are expected to go ahead as planned. A post on Nelson's website reads: "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."
