Four members of Luke Bryan's crew sustained injuries when the stage collapsed after the singer's Thursday night show in Columbus, Ohio.

Due to the damages that occurred at Ohio State University's Schottenstein Center, Bryan's concert scheduled for Lexington, Kentucky Friday has been postponed to Friday, February 21.

According to a statement posted on Bryan's website, the accident occurred "during production load out."

Early reports said a forklift might be responsible for the collapse, NBC said, citing The Ohio State University Police Division.

Officers were reportedly dispatched to the scene at about 12:04 a.m. Friday.

The four injured sustained minor damages to a foot or arm, according to NBC.

No fans were in the venue at the time of the incident.

"The tour's team will make the necessary repairs to the production elements so the tour may continue," said Bryan's statement.

Bryan is next scheduled to perform Saturday, January 18 at the Thompson-Boling Arena in Knoxville.
