Willie Nelson has cancelled his current tour indefinitely due to a bus crash early Saturday morning outside of Sulphur Springs, Texas, that left three of his band members injured.

Nelson, 80, was not on board the tour bus when it crashed into a bridge at about 3:30 a.m. on Interstate 30, NBC news reports.

One of Nelson's band members suffered serious injuries and two others received minor injuries, trooper Sylvia Jennings says. All three were taken to Hopkins County Memorial Hospital, about 80 miles outside of Dallas.

Nelson's website says the roads were icy and Jennings reported rain and high winds at the time of the accident.



The singer had planned to perform at the Horseshoe Casino in Tunica, Miss., on Saturday night.
