A tour spokesman for Gregg Allman's band says three crew members have been injured when a bus went off Interstate 77 in West Virginia.

Spokesman Ken Weinstein says the crew members were treated for minor injuries at a hospital and released Wednesday. He says the 68-year-old singer wasn't on the bus.

The Jackson County Sheriff's Office had no immediate information on the accident. Media outlets report the southbound bus went into the northbound lanes, through a guardrail and over an embankment before stopping against a tree next to a creek near Goldtown at about 5 a.m.

The bus was headed to a concert Wednesday at the Clay Center in Charleston, about 20 miles south of Goldtown. Clay Center spokeswoman LeAnn Cain said the concert is still on.
