Lady Antebellum’s Hillary Scott Involved in Bus Fire
Scott, her husband, her manager and her bus driver were on their way from Nashville to Dallas on Interstate 30 when, near Dalrock, Texas, they noticed smoke and stopped the bus. After they evacuated, the bus burst into flames.
All four of the traveling group are "safe and sound," according to Scott, who shared a frightening photo of the incident on Instagram, along with a note.
"Hey guys, we had a crazy morning on the way to Dallas today," the singer writes. "Our bus tire caught on fire, and we had to evacuate very quickly. EVERYONE IS SAFE AND SOUND. It was me, my husband, our tour manager and driver.
"Thanking God for our safety and the safety of all of those who helped put this fire out and keep us safe," Scott adds. "Love you all!!!!"
Dallas-Fort Worth's CBS station reports that no other cars were involved in the incident, but the highway was backed up as crews worked to clean up the area of the incident.
Shortly after the accident, Scott shared another incredible picture on Instagram.
"We had quite a few personal belongings in the back (where I was asleep before evacuating the bus), one of them being my Bible. I kid you not, EVERYTHING in the back lounge was destroyed from the flames, except my Bible. The outside cover was burned and messed up, but NOT ONE PAGE was missing," Scott explains in the photo's caption. "Y'all, God's Word will always stand. He is FOR YOU, WILL PROTECT YOU, AND HIS LOVE FOR YOU WILL NEVER FADE. My faith is forever deepened because of today. I hope this story deepens yours."
Lady Antebellum are scheduled to perform at the pre-ACM Awards Party for a Cause, as well as during the 2015 ACM Awards broadcast. The trio -- which also includes Dave Haywood and Charles Kelley -- is also nominated for Vocal Group of the Year.
