Members of Shania Twain's crew were hospitalised on Wednesday following a highway accident in Canada.

According to a statement released by Maverick Management, one crew bus and one truck from the country singer's Queen Of Me tour were involved in an incident between Winnipeg and Saskatoon, Canada.

"Multiple vehicles encountered dangerous driving conditions due to inclement weather," read the statement, via the New York Post. "Members of the production crew who require medical attention have been taken to nearby hospitals."

The management team added, "We are incredibly thankful to the emergency services teams for their quick response and ongoing support. We ask for patience as we look after our touring family."

It was confirmed that Shania, 58, was not on the bus at the time of the accident.
