Christian rock band MercyMe will resuming its tour with shows this week after their tour bus collided with a car, killing the other driver's unborn baby and two passengers in her car. Band publicist Velvet Kelm said in an e-mail message that the tour would resume Monday night at the Wisconsin State Fair in West Allis, Wis.

Kelm said the only tour date the band canceled was a show in Eureka, Mo., on Saturday, the day the collision occurred in Fort Wayne.
