UPDATED: Gregg Allman’s crew tour bus crashed early Wednesday morning in Jackson County, W. Va, Variety has confirmed.
Allman was not on the bus, but three members of the 10-person production team on board were hospitalized in Charleston for minor injuries and released shortly after.
Monitor engineer Earl McCoy, production manager Timothy Wright and audio technician Michael Gallun were the individuals who were injured, CBS affiliate WOWK reports.
According to the local station, the bus was traveling south toward Charleston when the driver started to choke on his coffee. The vehicle drifted into the northbound lane and then veered off the road, hitting a few trees, which prevented it from plunging into a nearby creek.
Gregg Allman, formerly of the Allman Brothers Band, is now touring as a solo act. His Wednesday night concert at Charleston’s Clay Center will go on as scheduled. The tour comes to Los Angeles’ Greek Theatre on Oct. 6.
