A bus that was part of Toby Keith‘s touring convoy caught on fire on a highway near Indianapolis, Ind. in the early hours of the morning on Monday (July 1).
While a bus blaze is always frightening, the good news is that the ‘Red Solo Cup’ singer was not on board when the fire broke out, and no one in his crew was injured. The bus was said to be carrying band members.
The tour bus in question was one of three that were traveling together after the singer’s Sunday night (June 30) gig in Chicago. It was headed to Nashville.
The fire started at approximately 4:45AM on Monday on Interstate 65. Heavy fire was seen coming from the back engine of the 1998 Prevost.
Driver Randy James noticed flames shooting from the rear upon looking in the driver’s side rearview mirror. The vehicle then lost power and he coasted to the side of the road. Firefighters had the blaze under control in about 25 minutes.
