Tour bus with Shania Twain's stage crew crashes in Saskatchewan, 13 injured


A crew bus and truck from Shania Twain's Queen of Me tour were involved in a rollover crash near Wolseley, Saskatchewan.

In a statement to CTV News, Maverick Management confirmed that the vehicles – which were traveling from Winnipeg to Saskatoon – were part of the tour.

“Members of the production team who required medical attention were transported to nearby hospitals. We are incredibly grateful to emergency responders for their quick response and ongoing support,” the statement said.

“We ask for your patience as we take care of our tour family.”

In an update at 3:30 p.m., the RCMP said 13 people were treated in hospital for injuries described as non-life-threatening.

Officials from Indian Head originally responded to the rollover shortly after 7 a.m.

Highway 1 remained closed from Wolseley east to the Manitoba border due to poor road conditions – but was reopened shortly after 12 p.m.

According to the Saskatchewan Highway Hotline, road conditions on Highway 1 were described as icy and slippery Wednesday morning.

CTV News found that the vehicle involved in the rollover had a Tennessee license plate.

The branding on the vehicle identified it as part of the fleet of Beat The Street USA – a Florida-based company that specializes in transporting bands and crews, according to its website.

The Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) of Indian Head continues to investigate the crash.

The town of Wolseley is located about 100 kilometers east of Regina.

As of 1:30 p.m., the next stop on the Queen of Me tour is still scheduled for Thursday, November 9th at 7:30 p.m. at the SaskTel Centre.
