11 injured in Eminem tour bus crash

A tour bus for rap star Eminem crashed and overturned after hitting two trucks on an interstate highway, police said. Eleven people were injured, including the star's DJ, bodyguard and a protege, the rapper Stat Quo.

Eminem, whose real name is Marshall Mathers III, was not on the bus, publicist Dennis Dennehy said. His Anger Management Tour was expected to go as scheduled Thursday night in Denver.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol said the bus was traveling at a high rate of speed when it ran off the road Wednesday night to avoid a collision with a semitrailer, then swerved back onto the roadway and hit the truck.
