The lead singer of the alternative rock band Weezer suffered minor injuries when the group's tour bus hit some ice, skidded across the New York State Thruway, struck a guide rail and slid into a ditch early Sunday, police said.

Rivers Cuomo and the band's assistant, identified as Sarah Kim, were taken to a local hospital following the accident in the upstate New York town of Glen, about 40 miles west of Albany. Kim also suffered minor injuries.
