INDIANAPOLIS (AP) _ Three members of the British rock band Oasis are recovering after being hurt in a car crash.

The musicians were in a taxi Tuesday afternoon when it was involved in a head-on collision with another vehicle in downtown Indianapolis.

Noel Gallagher, Andy Bell and Jay Darlington were taken by ambulance to a hospital, where they were treated for shock, cuts and bruises, according to a statement issued early Wednesday by concert promoter Clear Channel Entertainment.

Gallagher, who was sitting in the front of the taxi, suffered heavy facial bruises and seat belt cuts. Darlington, a keyboard player, injured a hand and was to return to the hospital for further treatment on Wednesday.

Doctors have ordered the musicians to rest for two days to let medication take effect, the statement said.

The band was scheduled to play Wednesday evening at the Murat Theatre, but that concert has been postponed. Fans were advised to keep their tickets until the show can be rescheduled, the statement said.

Oasis became wildly popular in the mid-1990s. Their 1995 album ``(What’s the Story) Morning Glory?″ debuted at No. 1 in the U.K. and became the second-best selling album in British history.
