"One of the tour buses transporting cast and crew of “Dancing with the Stars: Live! Light Up The Night” was involved in a multi-car accident this afternoon due to bad weather while en route to Ames, Iowa,” the official DWTS Live! Instagram shared on Monday. Because of the incident, the planned show was canceled on Monday night.
"To anyone involved in the accident, the entire cast sends their best wishes for a speedy recovery, and their deepest apologies to all of the fans who have been waiting to see the show tonight,” the post concluded.
Although it remains to be seen who was exactly on the tour bus yesterday, several of the show’s pros on the tour including Keo Motsepe, Emma Slater, Lindsay Arnold and Alan Bernsten to name a few.
Season 25 winner Jordan Fisher, who is also on the DWTS! Live tour, tweeted his gratitude, saying "Thanking God for the safety of our crew. Thanks for the prayers and well-wishes.” So far, there are no plans to cancel tonight’s show scheduled for Rockford, Illinois on Tuesday night.
