[UPDATE 10:14 p.m.] The Ghost Inside has issued a statement that sheds more light on the condition of the band members. Read it now.

[UPDATE 6:51 p.m.] According to a GoFundMe page set up for The Ghost Inside, one of the two people who died in the crash was the band’s tour bus driver. He leaves behind a child.

[UPDATE 1:53 p.m.] According to David Summers, tour manager for the band The Wonder Years, The Ghost Inside band members, along with their crew, are alive.

However, no information is yet available concerning the exact extent of injuries, as well as the identities of the two people reportedly killed in the crash.

[Original story] We have very little information at this time, but Jay Ivie, a trucker, sent us pictures from the scene of an accident possibly involving the band The Ghost Inside.

This is unconfirmed information. At the time of publication, there is nothing on social media and there is nothing on the bands Facebook or Twitter pages.

This accident was on Hwy 180 about 24 miles East of El Paso heading towards the Guadalupe Mtns and 8 miles East of The Border Patrol Check Point.

Mr. Ivie messaged us that the band members had eleven members on the bus when it collided with a semi-truck. He reported that two occupants in the semi-truck were killed.

According to Mr. Ivie, three band members were pulled from the bus unscathed while he was on the scene, with eight more on the bus to be accounted for. He mentioned that this was the worst crash he’s ever seen.

The band had played Wednesday night (11/17) in Lubbock to a crowd of about 300 at Jake’s Backroom.

We will update this post with more information as we receive it. Our thoughts and prayers to everyone involved.
