Toby Keith’s Bus Driver Injured During Shooting

George Hampton, 55, one of Toby Keith’s bus drivers, was treated at a Dallas hospital after being shot late Monday night (Oct. 4) while driving through on I-35 in the Dallas suburb of Carrollton, Texas. Police said Hampton was driving Keith’s unmarked equipment bus from Florida to Oklahoma when someone fired a single small-caliber bullet into the driver’s side of the bus around 11:15 p.m. Hampton, who resides in the Dallas area, sustained a wound to the upper thigh. Keith was not aboard the bus, but three other passengers were uninjured. No suspects have been identified, although authorities say the investigation continues and that road rage does not appear to be a factor in the incident.
