Weezer frontman Richard Cuomo was hospitalized Sunday morning after his bus slipped on an ice patch in New York and crashed.

The 40-year-old "Beverly Hills" singer/guitarist complained of rib pain post-accident, but his wife, Kyoko Cuomo, and 2-year-old daughter who were riding with him, remained unharmed, E! News has confirmed. 

Cuomo and family were on their way back from Toronto, Ontario for a concert at Boston University's Agganis Arena scheduled for Monday night. 

The accident happened just after 7:30 a.m., after the bus slid on ice, skidded into a median, crossed back over the highway, and went over a guardrail into a ditch, according to Sgt. Paul M. Swasey of the New York State Police. 

The band's assistant, Sarah Kim, also sustained minor injuries and was taken along with the banged up rocker to an upstate New York hospital.
