Shania Twain gives update on tour bus crash that left 13 hospitalized

Shania Twain gave her fans an update on her 13 crew members who were injured in a “very scary” crash while traveling for her “Queen of Me” tour in Canada.

“Thank you so much for the outpour of love and support from everyone,” the “Any Man of Mine” songstress wrote on her Instagram story Thursday.

“First and foremost my touring family are safe. Anyone needing medical care is receiving great support.”

Twain — who wasn’t present during the accident — added, “Every single crew person has been phenomenal, in the face of a very scary scenario.”

One of Twain’s crew buses and a truck were driving in icy conditions between Winnipeg and Saskatoon on Wednesday when the accident occurred, her management group told Page Six.

“Multiple vehicles encountered dangerous driving conditions due to inclement weather,” the statement read.

At the time, a Royal Canadian Mounted Police spokesperson told Entertainment Tonight that emergency services responded to a call about a rolled-over bus shortly after 7 a.m.

The spokesperson added that 13 people were taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. Footage of the scene, obtained by CBC Saskatchewan, showed the bus toppled on its side with pieces of the front broken off.

Debris was seen all over the ground in the ice and snow. The incident didn’t stop Twain from performing Thursday at the SaskTel Centre in Saskatchewan.

The “That Don’t Impress Me Much” singer has been on tour since April and is expected to wrap up on Nov. 14 in Vancouver. She will then start her Las Vegas residency in May 2024.
