A crew bus and one truck involved with the Shania Twain “Queen of Me” tour were involved in a rollover near Wolseley, Saskatchewan.

In a statement to CTV News, Maverick Management confirmed the vehicles – which were travelling from Winnipeg to Saskatoon – were part of the tour.

“Members of the production crew who require medical attention have been taken to nearby hospitals. We are incredibly thankful to the emergency services teams for their quick response and ongoing support,” the statement read.

“We ask for patience as we look after our touring family.”

In an update at 3:30 p.m., RCMP said 13 people were treated in hospital for injuries described as non-life-threatening.

Officers from Indian Head originally responded to the rollover just after 7 a.m.

Highway 1 remained closed from Wolseley east to the Manitoba border due to poor road conditions – but was reopened just after 12 p.m.

According to Saskatchewan's Highway Hotline, road conditions on Highway 1 were described as ice covered and slippery on Wednesday morning.

CTV News observed the vehicle involved in the rollover had Tennessee license plates.

Branding on the vehicle identified it as part of the Beat The Street USA fleet – a Florida based company specializing in band and crew bussing, according to its website.

Indian Head RCMP continue to investigate the crash.

The Town of Wolseley is located approximately 100 kilometers east of Regina.

As of 1:30 p.m., the next stop on The Queen of Me Tour is still set for Thursday, Nov. 9 at 7:30 p.m. at the SaskTel Centre.
