The Ghost Inside, a metal core band from Los Angeles, CA , were all involved in a devastating bus crash in November of 2015 earlier this year. The incident took place outside of El Paso, Texas on November 19. While all members and crew of the band were left in stable condition, two drivers lost their lives in the accident.
The drummer of The Ghost Inside, Andrew Tkaczyk, revealed in an update that he had lost a leg from the incident via his Instagram.

So the rumors are true everyone! Unfortunately I did lose my leg in this accident. This is one injury among many others such as fractures in my ribs, spine, and hip along with some ligament tears in my rotator cuff and Labrum. I have remained in positive and good spirits since I woke up from a 10 day coma in November to the sight of my missing leg. Not going to let it stop me. I don't care what anyone says. It's a long road ahead, but I WILL play drums again. Can't wait to get back on the kit. Couldn't have dealt with this without the love and support from my brothers in TGI & crew, friends, fans and family. Thank you all ❤️
Tkaczyk states in the message that he “WILL drum again” and that the road to recovery is still a long and tedious one and thanks all the fans for support.
A GoFundMe campaign was launched shortly after the crash to help The Ghost Inside and their families during this difficult time. There is also a separate GoFundMe to benefit the family of TGI’s deceased bus driver, Greg Hoke.
Many bands from all over rallied donations to help the band, as notable names such as Bring Me The Horizon, and various fans to help the members and crew heal.
