AUSTIN, Texas (Reuters) - A tour bus carrying members of the rock band The Ghost Inside and a truck crashed head-on in West Texas on a two-lane desert road, killing the drivers of the two vehicles and injuring 10 others, authorities said on Friday.

The Texas Department of Public Safety said the cause of the crash, which took place on Thursday about 15 miles (25 km) east of El Paso, has not yet been determined.

"All 5 band members and all members of the crew are alive and currently being treated for their injuries," the band said on its Facebook page.

It added that all of the band's U.S. shows on its current tour have been canceled.

The two people killed in the crash were bus driver Gregory Hoke of Texas and truck driver Steven Cunningham of New Mexico, the department said.
