Weezer has cancelled the rest of its December tour after the lead singer was injured in a bus crash in New York.
Rivers Cuomo and band assistant Sarah Kim suffered minor injuries when the group's tour bus skidded on ice, struck a guide rail and slid into a ditch Sunday morning.
Cuomo and Kim were hospitalized after the accident in the upstate New York town of Glen. That's about 64 kilometres west of Albany. They were travelling from Toronto to a show in Boston.
Cuomo's condition isn't clear.
A message on the band's website says Weezer is cancelling the rest of its Raditude tour and will try to reschedule those dates.
Calls and emails to publicist Jim Merlis weren't immediately returned Monday.
