Some members of the “Dancing With the Stars: Live” cast and crew were injured when the bus crashed on a snowy highway in Iowa on Monday, causing Monday night’s show to be canceled.

The bus was on its way to Ames, Iowa, and crashed on I-80, KCCI reported. More than 7 inches of snow fell in Iowa Sunday and Monday, causing 185 accidents and seven fatalities across the state.

Another pileup on I-35 involving more than 50 vehicles caused one fatality and several other critical injuries, KCCI reported. 

People reported the "Dancing With the Stars: Live" cast and crew were “rattled” a day after the accident but that “everyone’s OK.” Refunds will be available to ticket holders for the canceled show.

While it was unclear which members of the tour were on the bus that crashed, some of the members on the tour include Keo Motsepe, Emma Slater, Artem Chigvinstev, Sharna Burgess, Gleb Savchenko, Jenna Johnson, Hayley Erbert, and Brandon Armstrong, People reported. 

Cast member Frankie Muniz was on the bus and tweeted about the weather conditions earlier on the day of the crash, saying that he was looking out the bus window at the “snow covered ground in this crazy blizzard.”

Season 25 winner Jordan Fisher, who is also on the tour, tweeted after the crash to thank everyone for their prayers and well-wishes. 

Other "DWTS" cast members also tweeted about the crash to show they were thinking about their castmates.
