Gregg Allman's tour bus crashes in West Virginia

JACKSON COUNTY, West Virginia - A tour bus carrying members of Gregg Allman's band crashed in West Virginia.

At least three were injured in the crash, reports CBS affiliate WOWK.

Gregg Allman himself, who gained fame in the Allman Brothers band and now tours as a solo act, was not among the injured.

The injured were members of Allman's production team, and included a monitor engineer, a production manager and an audio technician, WOWK reports.

Officials say the tour bus was going south, towards Charleston, crossed I-77 into the northbound lanes and exited the road. It landed within feet of a creek near the 119 mile marker on I-77 near the Goldtown exit. Trees apparently stopped the bus from entering the creek.

The status of Allman's next show is unclear.
