Maverick Management has confirmed one of Shania Twain’s tour buses was involved in a rollover crash Monday near Saskatchewan, leaving 13 people injured, reports say.
“Members of the production crew who require medical attention have been taken to nearby hospitals,” the management company said in a statement issued to CTV News. “We ask for patience as we look after our touring family.”
The Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) confirmed 13 people were treated in the hospital for varying, non-life-threatening injuries, according to CTV. Twain was not onboard the bus at the time, a representative told NBC News.
“One crew bus and one truck from the Shania Twain – Queen Of Me tour were involved in a highway accident driving between Winnipeg and Saskatoon,” Maverick Management told People in a statement.
The company provided more clarity on the situation by briefly noting weather may have been a factor in this crash involving the tour bus.
“Multiple vehicles encountered dangerous driving conditions due to inclement weather. Members of the production crew who require medical attention have been taken to nearby hospitals,” the statement reads.
Officers from Indian Head were reportedly called to the scene of the collision shortly after 7:00 a.m., and began providing medical care for those in need.

Law enforcement officials closed Highway 1 from Wolseley east to the Manitoba border as a result of poor road conditions, but reopened the highway reopened after noon, according to CTV.
The branding on one of the vehicles was identified as the Beat The Street USA fleet, which is a Florida-based company specializing in bussing services for bands on tour. It is not yet clear why Twain apparently wasn’t traveling along with her team. (RELATED: Country Star Shania Twain Wipes Out On Stage)
