'Dancing With the Stars' Cast and Crew Involved in Deadly Car Crash
Some of the cast and crew of ABC's hit reality competition Dancing with the Stars were injured Monday when their tour bus was caught in a deadly car crash.
The accident, which happened in Ames, Iowa, on February 5, is said to have been caused by snowy weather conditions. What resulted was a 50-plus car pileup that killed one person and left many others injured.
Due to the severe circumstances, the evening's show in Ames, Iowa was cancelled.
DWTS Season 25 winner (and Teen Wolf star) Jordan Fisher and his dance partner Lindsay Arnold were both on the tour but not in the vehicle involved in the accident. Fisher took to Twitter to ease fans concerns by letting them know that the cast and crew involved in the incident only sustained minor injuries.
