California metalcore band THE GHOST INSIDE were involved in a truly horrible bus crash that took place Thursday (Nov. 19) outside of El Paso, TX.
The band’s bus collided head-on with a semi-truck and causing the death of band’s bus driver Steven Cunningham, 61. THE GHOST INSIDE’s Andrew Tkaczykt, Jonathan Vigil and Zach Johnson have received serious injuries and were transported by helicopter to the University Medical Center. There were all initially reported to be in critical condition. Tkaczyk’s brother Nick posted online that Andrew suffered head trauma as well as broken bones in his lower extremities and had a shoulder injury. Nick added that Andrew may require surgery and was in the intensive care unit.
The band issued a following statement regarding the accident:
A GoFundMe page has been launched to help cover the band’s medical bills and equipment losses as well as funeral expenses incurred by the tragic accident. To donate, just go here. Also, we need to applaud to BRING ME THE HORIZON, because these guys donated $10,000 to help their friends! I must say that I’m not really a fan of the band, but what they did here is praiseworthy.
