BILOXI, Miss., June 21 (UPI) -- Bret Michaels says he and his band-mates suffered some "bumps and bruises" but weren't seriously hurt when their bus crashed into some deer in Mississippi.

"Except for some bumps and bruises I am thankful there were no serious injuries," the former Poison front man told Celebuzz in a statement Friday. "It is unfortunate for the deer, but thankfully due to modern RV technology and a steel firewall we are all okay. I have every intention to make tonight's show in Biloxi and the tour will continue."

The celebrity news website quoted an unnamed source close to Michaels as saying the musicians' new tour bus hit "several deer" early Friday on its way from Abilene, Texas, to Biloxi, Miss.
