Willie Nelson postponed his remaining November tour dates after his band was involved in a bus crash over the weekend in Texas.

The tour bus that was carrying Nelson's band crashed into a bridge pillar on Interstate 30 about 80 miles east of Dallas early Saturday morning. Three of the five musicians on board sustained minor injuries. The 80-year-old country singer was on a separate bus that was not involved in the accident.

"We believe [the crash was] due to icy conditions on the road," Willie Nelson and Family wrote on its website. "No one suffered serious injuries. Paul English injured his ankle, Billy English suffered a bruised hip, and crewmember Tom Hawkins has a cracked rib. The other family members on the bus are sore but everyone is expected to recover fully."

Editor's Note: ObamaCare Is Here. Are You Prepared?

All three band members have since been discharged from the hospital, according to ABC News.

Willie Nelson and Family postponed the last four tour dates in November and said it plans to resume performances at the beginning of December.
