A tour bus carrying the popular Mexico-based Banda El Recodo toppled onto its side, injuring seven occupants, when it was sideswiped by a car on a South Texas highway.

The driver of the car also suffered minor injuries in the Friday morning crash on Texas 123 about 45 miles southeast of San Antonio. Trooper Gerald Bryant of the Texas Department of Public Safety says the woman's car crossed into the oncoming lane and sideswiped the bus, knocking it over.

Bryant says none of the injuries appeared to be life-threatening. The bus was carrying the band's 21-member traveling party from a Dallas engagement to a scheduled Saturday gig in McAllen.

The San Antonio Express-News reports the band has produced more than 160 albums over 74 years.
