Tragedy struck today as The Ghost Inside were involved in a serious bus accident. Their bus driver and the opposing semi-truck driver have both passed away as a result of this. The band and crew are alive but they’re being treated for injuries of varying magnitudes. Drummer Andrew Tkaczyk is currently in the worst condition of the group as detailed by his brother just below.
“For those not in the know, my brother Andrew was airlifted to the hospital this morning after his bus was involved in an accident. He is alive, however he has suffered head trauma, as well as broken bones in his lower extremities, and a shoulder injury. He is currently in ICU and may require surgery.
“Please give us all your prayers, thoughts, whatever it is that you do, as we need it.
“I ask out of respect to contact me instead of my other family members with any questions or inquiries, as I will handle it due to my parents being extremely distraught right now. Thank you.”
It goes without saying that the current “Locals Only” tour has been canceled. The band themselves gave the following statement after these events.
“Thanks to everyone who reached out with concern today. The Ghost Inside was involved in a serious bus accident outside El Paso, TX this morning. All 5 band members + all members of the crew are alive and currently being treated for their injuries. Please keep them in your thoughts as well as their bus driver and those in the other vehicle who did not make it. Unfortunately, all US shows on the Locals Only Tour are cancelled. Refunds available at point of purchase. We will update you more when we can.”
We wish all the best and a swift recovery to those involved. And may both drivers rest in peace.
