Thankfully, the "Dancing With the Stars: LIVE! - Light Up the Night" cast and crew are "fine" -- with some "recovering from minor injuries" -- after their tour bus was involved in one of the many crashes in snowy Iowa.
According to the Des Moines Register, law enforcement responded to dozens of multi-vehicle crashes on Monday, killing eight people, and damaging more than 150 vehicles.
Here's what happened to the DWTS tour, per their Instagram:
IMPORTANT UPDATE FROM DANCING WITH THE STARS: LIVE! REGARDING TONIGHT'S SHOW IN AMES, IOWA: One of the tour buses transporting cast and crew of "Dancing with the Stars: Live! Light Up The Night" was involved in a multi-car accident this afternoon due to bad weather while en route to Ames, Iowa. All cast and crew members are fine, with some recovering from minor injuries. Given this unforeseen accident, and the fact that the safety and health of our cast and crew is of the utmost importance, tonight's show at Stephens Auditorium in Ames, IA has been cancelled. To anyone involved in the accident, the entire cast sends their best wishes for a speedy recovery, and their deepest apologies to all of the fans who have been waiting to see the show tonight. Information regarding rescheduling and/or refunds will be available soon.
The Fall 2017 season winner, Jordan Fisher, is part of the tour, and he shared his relief that the accident wasn't worse:
Thanking God for the safety of our crew. Thanks for the prayers and well-wishes. https://t.co/CLCOD3R0rx

DWTS pro Emma Slater, who is engaged to fellow pro Sasha Farber, updated fans on the accident:
We took this picture last night after being involved in the I-80 road accident in Iowa, on our ride out. Thinking of everyone who was involved. Just wanted to let people who were asking know that we are ok and are so grateful that non of us on the tour bus was hurt. Everyone was checked out and we're back with our group. It's difficult to feel overly positive when there are so many people less fortunate than us. My heart truly goes out to all who was involved and most definitely to all the service men and women who were on the scene almost immediately helping out everyone trapped in their vehicles. And lastly, thank you to our bus driver Billy who undoubtedly saved us yesterday. It's definitely a day we won't forget. @sashafarber1 @lindsarnold @samcusick @brandon_armstrong94
Here are the upcoming tour dates. Stay safe out there!
Remember, there is no regular spring season of "Dancing With the Stars" this year. (And maybe ever again?) Instead, they just have the fall season, plus a special all-athletes mini-season of DWTS premiering Monday, April 30 on ABC.
