Kenny Chesney Tour Bus in Traffic Accident
A bus that is part of Kenny Chesney's Poets and Pirates tour was in a minor accident Wednesday in Jackson, Miss. Chesney was not riding in the bus when it collided with a car on Interstate 55, sending the car crashing into a concrete barrier. Only the driver and two stage technicians were onboard. They were not injured, but the driver of the car was taken to a local hospital. There is no word yet on her condition, nor on who was at fault in the accident. Click here for photos from the scene.
Chesney's bus was on its way to New Orleans, where the singer is scheduled to perform tonight. Chesney was visiting Jackson as part of what's become a yearly ritual for him -- practicing with the New Orleans Saints. Chesney suited up and joined the team Monday at their last day of training camp at Millsaps College. The highlight of his practice: catching a 45-yard punt.
