ZURICH, Nov 25 (Reuters) - U.S. jazz musician Marcus Miller

was injured on Sunday along with members of his band when their

bus crashed in Switzerland, killing the driver, police said.

The two-time Grammy winner was travelling with 10 members of

his band from Monte Carlo in Monaco to Hengelo in the

Netherlands when the bus crashed on the highway near the town of

Schattdorf in central Switzerland.

A Swiss police spokesman said the driver died from his

injuries. The reserve driver, Miller and the members of his band

were all injured but not seriously, he said, declining to give

further details.

Miller, who plays keyboard and clarinet as well as electric

bass, has collaborated with Miles Davis and Luther Vandross and

was on tour to promote his album Renaissance.

Earlier this year, 22 children and six adults returning from

on a ski trip organised by a Belgian school were killed in a bus

crash in Switzerland.
