Members of The Ghost Inside and their crew were injured in a horrific accident on highway 180 in Texas that tragically claimed two lives.
Tragically, The Ghost Inside’s tour bus driver died during the accident and leaves behind a child. We hope to help cover funeral expenses for him and his family.
Multiple members of the band and crew suffered serious injuries during the ordeal. Two members of the band had to be airlifted which is extremely expensive. Equipment was also lost in addition to expensive medical bills incurred. This is extremely costly for the band.
This fund is set up to cover the band’s medical bills and equipment losses as well as funeral expenses incurred during this tragic event.
Any amount of money you can contribute to this fund is greatly appreciated. It is extremely difficult for a band to cover expenses from a tragic event such as this one.
