Willie Nelson perform onstage at the 2012 CMT Music awards on June 6, 2012 in Nashville, Tennessee.

A tour bus carrying some of Willie Nelson’s band members crashed into a Texas bridge pillar and injured three musicians Saturday.

Nelson was not on the bus, but The Willie Nelson and Family tour has been suspended indefinitely, according to the band’s website. Band member Robert Paul English broke his hip, and Billy English and Thomas Ray Hawkins were treated for minor injuries.

A severe storm caused the bus to spin out of control before crashing just outside of Sulphur Spring, Texas.
