Twain was not on the bus at the time.

Dwayne Stone, the fire chief for the Town of Grenfell, said first responders were called to the scene just after 7 AM on Wednesday. Twain was not on the bus at the time of the accident.

He revealed firefighters had to break windows and use the bus' emergency hatch to free the 13 people trapped inside.

"All the escape hatches, the front top window and the back top window were out," Stone told Canadian outlet Global News. "Slowly we got them out. We had people up on the roof, inside, people in the back, people in the front just working to get everyone out in a safe manner."

Images from the crash showed the bus on its side with visible damage and items scattered on the ground.

"Most of the passengers from what I understand [have] minor injuries — broken bones, cuts, bruises — but I didn't hear of any life-threatening injuries," he shared.

The tour bus was carrying some of Twain's production crew en route to Saskatoon for the country performer's SaskTel Centre concert Thursday night.

"The Street USA bus experienced black ice on the roadway causing an accident," Joerg Philipp, the owner of Beat the Street USA said in a Facebook post.
