Actor Gary Sinise cancels Sunscreen Film Festival concert in St. Pete after car accident

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, we have some bad news.

The actor was injured in a car accident last Friday, causing some performances to be canceled, including the free April 20 show in St. Petersburg.

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.

Sinise was to be one of the star attractions at this year's Sunscreen Film Festival, April 19-22. Festival organizers are eyeing potential replacements for Sinise, and add on their website, "We are working on rescheduling Gary Sinise and the Lt. Dan Band for a date sometime in the future."
