Shania Twain Tour Bus in Highway Accident, Multiple Hospitalizations Reported

November 9, 2023

Several members of Shania Twain’s tour crew were hospitalized on Wednesday in Canada after one crew bus and one truck were involved in a rollover, The Post can confirm.

“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,” Maverick Management told The Post in a statement.

“Multiple vehicles encountered dangerous driving conditions due to inclement weather.”

The statement continued, “Members of the production crew who require medical attention have been taken to nearby hospitals.”

“We are incredibly thankful to the emergency services teams for their quick response and ongoing support,” Twain’s management said. “We ask for patience as we look after our touring family.”

The Royal Canadian Mounted Police issued a statement about a coach bus with Tennessee license plates rolling over on Highway 1 at around 7 a.m. CT Wednesday morning, according to the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation.

It has been confirmed that the “Man, I Feel Like a Woman” singer, who is from Ontario, was not on the bus at the time of the accident.

The “Queen of Me” tour, which is promoting her first album in six years of the same name, is scheduled to stop in Saskatoon on Thursday.

It is unclear whether that show will go on.

Dwayne Stone, the fire chief for the Town of Grenfell, told Global News that crews were called out to the crash shortly after 7 a.m. Wednesday and had to break windows to free 13 people trapped in the bus.

Stone did not believe any of their injuries were life-threatening.
