Reports are beginning to pour in through Twitter that the Ghost Inside have been involved in a serious bus accident on their way from Texas to Phoenix. It is being said that they collided with a semi truck. According to CBS reporter Lashay Wesley, the accident took place just a few miles East of the U.S. border patrol checkpoint on US 62/180.
While local reporters are on the scene and live-updating through Twitter, we have confirmed through Dave Summers (tour manager for the Wonder Years) that all members of the band and crew are alive and accounted for.
AP has reached out to a representative from the band and is awaiting further comment. We will update this story as more information surfaces.
