Willie Nelson

Band Members Hospitalized

After Tour Bus Crash

Exclusive Details

1122-willie-nelson-tmz3 of Willie Nelson's band members were hospitalized this morning after their tour bus crashed in Texas ... and the band's blaming it on an icy road.

The band's bus (Willie was in his own ride) crashed along I-30 around 3:30 when it hit a bridge pillar -- about 80 miles east of Dallas.

The most severe injury ... a broken hip. The other two guys walked away with bumps and bruises.

A rep for the band says the next four shows have been cancelled.

On the road again.

I'm sure it was Icy Roads in Texas and it had nothing to do with all the drugs on board...

No ice east of Dallas. That excuse doesn't work. The ice is way in other parts of the state.

Damn icy roads!...
(Nice name for a song and I want title credit and points if you write it dagnabbit)...

But they do live to play another day and from the look of the front of that jacked up bus... the driver is very lucky to be alive.
