Tour Bus With Josh Turner's Crew Involved in Fatal Crash

A bus carrying country singer Josh Turner's road crew has crashed in California, leaving one dead and seven injured following one of his concerts, authorities say. "Mr. Josh Turner and band were in different buses and not injured".

26-year-old Carl Hardin is at Twin Cities Hospital with moderate injuries.

A spokesperson for the San Luis Obispo County Sheriff's Office told CBS News the bus went down a steep embankment of roughly 50 feet.

The bus appears to have driven off Highway 46 near McMillan Canyon Road, according to CHP's traffic incident report page.

At least two people were thrown from the bus, including the crew member who died, the station said.

The bus was driving east in the right, slow lane of the highway at about 55 to 60 miles per hour, the CHP said.

The California Highway Patrol investigates a deadly tour bus crash on Highway 46 West near Shandon.

Firefighters said two people from the bus were airlifted to a hospital with major injuries, while five others were hospitalized via ambulance for moderate injuries.

Turner, a country and gospel singer, nor any of the musicians were involved in the crash.

As a result of the crash, Josh Turner has postponed the rest of his tour dates.

A statement from Universal Music Group Nashville read, via the San Luis Obispo Tribune, "Josh Turner and his road family have suffered a devastating loss".

The tour bus was headed to Washington State where Turner had his next scheduled performance at the Central Washington State Fair this upcoming Friday, Sept. 20.
