Gregg Allman Tour Members Involved In Bus Crash

Gregg Allman's tour bus crashed early Wednesday morning in Jackson County, West Virginia, TheWrap has learned.

According to local news stations, the bus was carrying 10 people and driving south when the person behind the wheel started to choke. The health scare caused the driver to drift into the northbound lane and then off the road.

Allman's reps told TheWrap that Allman, formerly of the Allman Brothers, was not injured, but three others were taken to the hospital with minor injuries and released shortly after.

Allman is set to perform at Charleston's Clay Center at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, and the event will go on as planned.
