On Monday night, several members of the cast and crew of "Dancing With The Stars: Light Up The Night Live!" were injured. Their tour bus was involved in a fatal accident in Iowa. 

The bus was a part of a 70-vehicle pileup on the freeway near Ames, Iowa. Reportedly, the massive accident was due to poor driving conditions caused by a winter storm. 

The unsafe roads in Iowa on Monday caused dozens of injuries and, according to PEOPLE, seven deaths. The DWTS spokesperson released a statement, saying that all of the cast and crew with them were unharmed, except for minor injuries. 

The statement said, "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."

They continued, announcing that their next show had to be canceled and sending their condolences to everyone involved in the accident. 

They said, "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 canceled. 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."

As of Tuesday morning, no confirmation has been given regarding who was on the tour bus involved in the accident. However, Country Rebel noted that some of the members on the tour include Keo Motsepe, Emma Slater, Artem Chigvinstev, Sharna Burgess, Gleb Savchenko, Lindsay Arnold, Alan Bersten, Jenna Johnson, Hayley Erbert, Brandon Armstrong, and Sasha Farber. Additionally, actor Frankie Muniz posted a Twitter status earlier on Monday, making it seem like he was on the bus. Other DWTS members have shared their well-wishes on Twitter:
