Weezer frontman Rivers Cuomo has suffered minor injuries after the group's tour bus hit some ice, skidded across the New York State Thruway and slid into a ditch.

Police say singer Rivers Cuomo and the band's assistant were taken to a local hospital following Sunday's early morning accident in upstate New York, about 40 miles west of Albany. The assistant also suffered minor injuries.

Cuomo's wife and two-year-old daughter were also in the bus. They were not hurt.

State police say the group was driving to Boston when the vehicle struck ice and the driver lost control.

The remainder of the band's December tour has been canceled. A statement on the band's Web site said dates will be rescheduled if possible.
