Kenny Chesney Tour Bus Collides with Car

Rush-hour traffic came to a standstill Wednesday morning after a wreck involving a bus that's part of Kenny Chesney 's concert tour.

It happened around 7:00 in the southbound lanes of Interstate 55, near the I-220 split.

The bus collided with a red car, which crashed into a concrete barrier. The driver of the car was taken to to a local hospital.

Chesney was not on the bus. Only the driver and two stage technicians were aboard, and they were not injured.

The bus was on its way to New Orleans, where the country music superstar is scheduled to perform Thursday.

Chesney was in Jackson on Monday, where he suited up and threw footballs with the New Orleans Saints. He and head coach Sean Payton are friends, and Payton had invited Chesney to join the Saints for their last day of training camp at Millsaps College.
