In sharing details with People and other media, Twain's team notes that she was not onboard any vehicle involved. The Queen of Me Tour ends in Vancouver on Tuesday (Nov. 14).
"Thank you so much for the out pour of love and support from everyone," Twain writes to fans via Instagram Stories. "First and foremost my touring family are safe. Anyone needing medical care is receiving great support."
"The local community and every single crew person has been phenomenal, in the face of a very scary scenario. Hug and hold those you love, we are doing the same."
