What a morning for Toby Keith! Toby's tour bus caught fire Monday morning on Interstate 65 in Boone County just before 5 a.m.
Toby was not on board the bus, but his backup singers and band technicians were. Fortunately, they were not injured. That was a relief for Toby!
The bus driver told authorities that as soon as he noticed flames coming from the rear of the bus, the bus lost power. The driver was able to pull onto the emergency lane of I-65.
Officials continue to investigate the fire, but believe it started in the engine compartment in the rear of the bus. They've set damage estimates at $250,000.
The tour bus was headed to Nashville, Tenn. from Chicago, Ill.
