Man Killed in Nelson Bus Crash: A motorist was killed Sunday when his car slammed head-on into a bus carrying singer Willie Nelson on a tour of eastern Canada, police said. The dead motorist was identified as Paul Leonard Burtch, 20, of Lower Sackville, Nova Scotia. Nelson and four others aboard the bus were unhurt in the crash, which forced the bus into a ditch. Burtch's car crossed the center line of Route 104 and hit Nelson's bus head-on about 3:30 a.m. near the town of Riversdale in Nova Scotia, Royal Canadian Mounted Police said. It was the second accident within the past month involving a performer on a tour bus. Singer Gloria Estefan suffered a broken back when her bus was hit by a truck in Pennsylvania on March 24.
