Shania Twain has spoken out after the news broke that her tour bus had been in a crash which left 13 people hospitalized.

On Wednesday (November 8), it was reported that a truck from Shania Twain's 'Queen Of Me' tour was involved in an accident that saw the vehicle turn over while traveling between Winnipeg and Saskatoon in Canada, leaving 13 crew members in need of medical attention.

The incident, which occurred around 7:00AM, did not involve the 58-year-old singer.

In a statement to the New York Post, Maverick Management gave further details on the crash.

"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, Canada. 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 continued before adding: "We are incredibly thankful to the emergency services teams for their quick response and ongoing support. We ask for patience as we look after our touring family."

As per a report by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police issued a statement about a coach bus with Tennessee license plates rolling over on Highway 1 at around 7:00AM CT on Wednesday morning with 13 members on board being rushed to a nearby medical facility.

Images published from the crash show the tour bus lying on its side on the highway with debris, which included everything from mattresses and cushions to books and paper, cascaded all around the area.

In the wake of the accident, Twain has now spoken out.

Taking to her Instagram Stories, the country singer said: "First and foremost my touring family are safe."

She continued: "Anyone needing medical care is receiving great support. The local community and every single crew person has been phenomenal, in the face of a very scary scenario.

"Hug and hold those you love, we are doing the same”, the 58-year-old added before concluding the post with a red love heart.

Despite the accident, the 'Queen of Me' tour which was scheduled to be in Saskatoon on Thursday, will still be going ahead.

Twain still has a total of four dates to perform in Canada, before she is set to return for her third Las Vegas residency – kicking off on May 10, 2024, until December 14.

Our thoughts and prayers are with those injured in the crash. We hope they all have a speedy recovery.
