Eminem bus crash injures eleven
Eminem's Anger Management tour continued despite the crash
A tour bus carrying members of rapper Eminem's entourage has crashed on a motorway in Missouri, US, injuring 11 people including his bodyguard and DJ.

Eminem, real name Marshall Mathers, was not on the bus at the time.

The bus collided with cars and two motorbikes after swerving to avoid a lorry while travelling at high speed.

The rapper's DJ Alan Maman, 27, known as Alchemist, was treated and released from hospital. An unnamed motorcyclist, 37, remains in a serious condition.

Rapper's protege

At least seven people from Eminem's tour and four others were taken to hospital.

Stanley Benton, 26, a rapper who goes by the name Stat Quo and is considered one of Eminem's proteges, was among those treated and released.

Eminem's current Anger Management Tour went ahead as scheduled in Denver on Thursday.

An investigation into the incident has been launched.
