Bret Michaels just can’t catch a break.
The Rock of Love star, who sustained facial injuries during the opening number of the June 7 Tony Awards, was involved in a highway accident after a car lost control and hit his tour bus in Canada over the weekend.
According to a statement on Michaels’s Web site, the Poison singer, 46, was en route to St. Paul, Minn., on July 4 after performing at Toronto’s Molson Amphitheater when a car “lost control and slid into the side of Mr. Michaels’s tour bus causing a five car pile-up on the roadway.”
No injuries were reported, and Michaels and his crew were “released from the scene” after an investigation.
The singer was supposed to perform solo at the Taste of Minnesota music festival – but is now expected to rejoin his band Poison on tour on Tuesday in Harford, Conn.
At the Tonys, Michaels suffered a fractured nose and split lip after he was hit by a piece of scenery as it descended from the ceiling. Though he railed against the show’s producers, the rocker decided not to press charges. “There’s no lawsuit,” he said at the time. “I’m taking the high road.”
