GLEN, N.Y. (AP) — The lead singer of the rock band Weezer has suffered minor injuries after the group's tour bus hit some ice, skidded across the New York State Thruway and slid into a ditch.

Police say singer Rivers Cuomo and the band's assistant were taken to a local hospital following Sunday's early morning accident in upstate New York, about 40 miles west of Albany. The assistant also suffered minor injuries.

Cuomo's wife and 2-year-old daughter were also in the bus. They were not hurt.



State police say the group was driving to Boston when the vehicle struck ice and the driver lost control.
