(Newser) – Willie Nelson has suspended his tour indefinitely after three members of his band were hurt when their bus plowed into a bridge pillar in East Texas during rainy conditions. Nelson was not aboard the bus when it crashed about 3:30am local time on Interstate 30 near Sulphur Springs, 75 miles northeast of Dallas. Two band members have minor injuries, while the third was seriously hurt, say police. Their names and conditions weren't immediately released. Seven people were on the bus, including the driver, who was dealing with wet roads and high winds. (Read more Willie Nelson stories.)
