Country singer Michael Wilson Hardy – aka Hardy – was forced to postpone tour dates after he and his crew were injured in a tour bus accident.
Hardy and three of his tour crew were traveling on the bus after completing two shows in Bristol, Tennessee, when the bus crashed, leaving them all with “serious injuries.”
While Hardy has since gone home to recover, the bus driver remains hospitalized. The cause of the accident, which occurred on Interstate 40 near Nashville, is not yet known.
Hardy shared the news on his Instagram page: “After last night’s show, our tour bus was involved in an accident on our way home from Bristol.”
“There were only four of us on the bus, including myself, but we were all treated for serious injuries,” he continued.
“Our friend and bus driver needs your prayers as he is still in hospital. His family is with him while he is being treated and we are all drawing and praying for him.”
Hardy also updated fans on his own medical condition: “I was discharged from the hospital but have been told by my doctors to recover for the next few weeks, which could cost us a couple of shows,” he said, adding that fans would keep track of that for the next few days as he “rested”.
“Please keep our street family in your prayers and I promise to keep you updated over the coming days. God bless our medical professionals and local and state officials for their quick response and incredible service,” he continued.
