Gary Sinise injured in a car accident, cancels Lt. Dan Band shows




If you were already lining up for Gary Sinise's group the Lt. Dan Band at the seventh annual Sunscreen Film Festival in St. Pete, you may want to pay attention to the news. The actor was injured in a car accident last Friday, causing some performances to be canceled.

The 57-year-old was a passenger in the car that was in the accident, his spokeswoman tells the AP. She didn't offer specifics about his injuries, but there was confirmation that a fundraising concert in Martinsville, Va., was postponed and a Palm Desert, Calif., show next week has been canceled.

No news on his free April 20 show at the local film fest, but our Soundcheck music blog will be digging up whatever news is available. He's done shooting CSI: NY for the season, so that shouldbn't be a problem. We hope any injuries aren't serious enough to force another cancellation.

UPDATE: The show is canceled, Soundcheck says.
