DES MOINES, Iowa (CBS/AP) -- A tour bus carrying cast and crew members of "Dancing with the Stars: Live! Light Up the Night" was involved in a crash in Iowa on Monday.

The crash occurred on Interstate 80 while traveling to Ames for a performance at Stephens Auditorium.

Authorities say cast and crew members are fine. Some sustained minor injuries.

The show was canceled. Information regarding rescheduling and refunds was not immediately known.

Meanwhile, dozens of other cars were involved in pile-up crashes across the state on snow-covered freeways.

According to Iowa State Patrol Sgt. Nathan Ludwig, seven people died on Iowa roads. Troopers responded to 185 accidents across the state.

A crash on Interstate 35 involved 70 cars. Authorities say it is the worst they'd seen.

In eastern Iowa, Cedar Rapids police responded to a single-vehicle crash that claimed the lives of two men on Interstate 380. A third man was hospitalized for treatment of serious injuries.

On Interstate 80, police say a person was killed in a crash east of Grinnell, and another person died and two others were injured near Durant.

The majority of the crashes were caused by weather-related conditions, police said.

Snow showers were expected Tuesday before midnight, but accumulations should be less than one inch.

The last time Des Moines had more than three inches of snow was on Dec. 28, 2015.
