THE GHOST INSIDE Announce One-Off Comeback Show Following Fatal 2015 Tour Bus Accident

Back on November 19th, 2015 metal band The Ghost Inside's tour bus was involved in a head-on collision with an 18-wheeler in El Paso, TX. The accident left two people dead and 10 people injured. At the time of the accident the band issued the following statement:

“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 five 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."

The crash happened around 9:16 AM (Thursday, November 19th, 2015) on mile marker 63 along U.S. 62/180 near the Border Patrol checkpoint.

“We have accounted for 12 people. Two have been confirmed deceased and 10 are injured,” said State Trooper Moises Vasquez. “Some were transported to local area hospitals in Hudspeth, and others were transported to El Paso. “

The driver of the tour bus, Gregory Hoke, 31, of Round Rock, Texas and the driver of the semi, Steven Cunningham, 64, of Las Cruces, were killed. The Ghost Inside drummer Andrew Tkaczyk later revealed that he lost his right leg in the accident but vowed to play drums again.
