Other DWTS members, who met with the accident, also took to social media to assure fans that they were fine.
We took this picture last night after being involved in the I-80 road accident in Iowa, on our ride out. Thinking of everyone who was involved. Just wanted to let people who were asking know that we are ok and are so grateful that non of us on the tour bus was hurt. Everyone was checked out and we’re back with our group. It’s difficult to feel overly positive when there are so many people less fortunate than us. My heart truly goes out to all who was involved and most definitely to all the service men and women who were on the scene almost immediately helping out everyone trapped in their vehicles. And lastly, thank you to our bus driver Billy who undoubtedly saved us yesterday. It’s definitely a day we won’t forget. @sashafarber1 @lindsarnold @samcusick @brandon_armstrong94
