SHREVEPORT—Authorities in north Louisiana say two people in a pickup truck were killed when the truck ran head-on into a tour bus carrying members of country singer Trace Adkins' band.
Five band members were treated for minor injuries in the Saturday morning accident, according to Cindy Chadwick of the Caddo Parish Sheriff's Office.
Adkins was not on the bus. Chadwick said he drove to the scene after hearing about the accident.
The cause of the accident was not immediately known.
Chadwick said a witness had seen the pickup truck weaving in traffic. The truck crossed the center line of U.S. Highway 71 and ran into the bus around 9:30 a.m.
Adkins, a native of nearby Webster Parish, was scheduled to perform a concert with Martina McBride Saturday night at the CenturyTel Center in Bossier City. A spokeswoman for CenturyTel told KSLA television that the concert was still scheduled.
