Having been involved in a tragic traffic collision whilst on tour on November 19th 2015 – an incident that sadly took the lives of the two drivers of the respective vehicles involved – The Ghost Inside drummer Andrew Tkaczyk has revealed earlier today that he as a result has lost one of his legs. He confirmed this via his Instagram account, along with an update on his recovery. You can check out his post below:
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 ❤️
At this stage, it is believed all members of the band and their crew are still recovering in hospital. A GoFundMe campaign (here) has been launched to help them and their families during this difficult time.
Along with this, a separate GoFundMe campaign (here) has also been launched to benefit the family of the band’s deceased bus driver, Greg Hoke.
