The Ghost Inside Look Back At Fatal Bus Crash Six Months Later

The Ghost Inside

(TeamRock Radio) The Ghost Inside's Jim Riley has reflected on the horrific bus crash in El Paso, Texas, last November to mark the six-month anniversary of the tragedy.

The bassist says he's learned so much from watching his bandmates on their long road to recovery - after the road accident left them with life-changing injuries and killed both drivers.

He says: "I went to bed last night knowing today was going to be emotional. On November 19 I woke up to a living nightmare. I knew something bad had happened but no clue the extent.

"I checked to make sure I wasn't impaled by anything and got myself out that back window. I was the first person out of the bus and the first to see the scene. The next two hours were a blur. Everything was confusion. Fearing for the lives of my best friends and learning of the two drivers' lives lost.

"One by one the other guys emerged from the wreckage, a couple on their own but most on backboards. I remember feeling lost and helpless."

Riley continues: "I'm the tour dad - the guy that fixes what breaks and looks after our little family. I was stuck on the sideline while my guys fought for their survival. Even now, I want to heal them." Read more here.
