American hardcore band The Ghost Inside have been involved in a pretty horrific bus accident just outside El Paso, Texas, where their bus driver, and the driver of the colliding truck, sadly didn’t make it.
The band have released a statement stating the band and crew are alive and safe, though all have been taken into medical care. Our thoughts are with the band and their families, and the drivers’ families too.
The music community have set up a Go-Fund page to help raise some funds to support the bands medical costs. They have also lost all their equipment in the accident, and part of the funds will go towards the driver’s family too. If you wish to donate, or just spread the word, you can visit the page here.
Get better soon The Ghost Inside!
