Three people have been hospitalised after Willie Nelson‘s band’s tourbus was involved in an accident.
The bus crashed this morning (November 23) in Texas on a icy road, reports TMZ. Nelson was reportedly in his own bus when the band bus hit a bridge pillar roughly 80 miles east of Dallas. One person was left with a broken hip but the other two men apparently “walked away with bumps and bruises”.
Nelson released his last studio album, ‘Heroes’, in May of last year. The LP featured covers of tracks including Coldplay’s ‘The Scientist’ and Pearl Jam’s ‘Just Breathe’, as well as his pro-cannabis song ‘Roll Me Up’, which featured Snoop Dogg.
The singer has insisted that legalising marijuana would save “a whole lotta” lives and money. The country singer told the Guardian that smoking weed wasn’t “dangerous healthwise” and said it should be decriminalised. Asked whether the drug should be legalised, he replied: “It has to, because economically we need the money – why give it to criminals? Most people realise it’s not a deadly drug like cocaine or cigarettes.”
