Dancing with the Stars' tour had to cancel a show because one of its tour buses carrying cast and crew was involved in a multiple-vehicle crash in snowy Ames, Iowa, that left one person dead.

"Everyone's rattled," a source told People on Tuesday of the accident, confirming that some members of the tour's cast suffered minor injuries but ultimately "everyone is okay."

The Iowa State Patrol told E! News the traffic accident involved at least 50 vehicles on I-35 in Iowa around noon on Monday. In addition to the one fatality, five people were reportedly critically injured.

After the accident, a spokesperson for Dancing with the Stars: Live! Light Up the Night released a statement providing fans with an update on everyone's well-being, as well as information about its Monday-night show.

"One of the tour buses transporting cast and crew of Dancing with the Stars: Live! Light Up The Night was involved in a multi-car accident this afternoon due to bad weather while en route to Ames, Iowa. All cast and crew members are fine, with some recovering from minor injuries," the statement read, according to E! News.

"Given this unforeseen accident, and the fact that the safety and health of our cast and crew is of the utmost importance, tonight's show at Stephens Auditorium in Ames, IA has been canceled."

The statement continued, "To anyone involved in the accident, the entire cast sends their best wishes for a speedy recovery, and their deepest apologies to all of the fans who have been waiting to see the show tonight."

The official DWTS: Live! tour Instagram account also posted news about the crash, which actually appeared to involve more like 70 vehicles, according to several on-site reporters.

The Instagram post was partially captioned: "Information regarding rescheduling and/or refunds will be available soon."

It remains unclear who was aboard the particular Dancing with the Stars tour bus that crashed.

The professional dancers who are a part of the tour are Emma Slater, Keo Motsepe, Sharna Burgess, Artem Chigvinstev, Lindsay Arnold, Gleb Savchenko, and Alan Bersten, along with DWTS Troupe members Jenna Johnson, Hayley Erbert, Brandon Armstrong and Sasha Farber.

Dancing with the Stars' Season 25 cast members, Frankie Muniz and Jordan Fisher, are also a part of this giant 66-day winter tour.

"Thanking God for the safety of our crew," Jordan wrote on Twitter Monday night. "Thanks for the prayers and well-wishes."

Prior to the accident, Frankie tweeted about the weather conditions, writing, "Riding in the bus on our way to the show tonight in Ames, Iowa, looking out the window at the snow covered ground in this crazy blizzard listening to unreleased songs of a band I was in 8 years ago."
