FORT WAYNE, Ind. (AP) - The Christian rock band MercyMe canceled
its Saturday show in St. Louis after its tour bus hit a car in northeastern Indiana, killing two passengers in the car and the pregnant car driver's unborn baby.
A photo of the damaged bus and the cancellation was posted on the band's Web site. Six Flags St. Louis issued a statement saying the show was rescheduled because the band was "involved in a vehicle accident in Indiana."
Fort Wayne police Officer Liza Thomas says witnesses told police the bus was going through a green light about 1:15 a.m. Saturday when the car made a left turn in front of it. Thomas says there were no injuries reported on the bus.
She says two passengers in the car died and the driver was in critical condition after losing her baby.
