Just days after Toby Keith's band leader and bass player for the past 20 years Chuck Guff was killed ina car accident, news broke over the weekend that Kellie Pickler's drummer suffered serious injuries as the result of a car accident on Saturday (March 2).
Gregg Lohman was driving on Interstate 65 in Kentucky when the crash occurred.
According to the Nashville televison WKRN, Lohman was one of three hospitalized in a four-car wreck, which happened just shortly after a tragic accident on the other side of the highway, in which six people were killed. It’s believed that traffic on the southbound side of the road slowed while drivers looked at the initial crash between a tractor-trailer and an SUV, which caused a fire on the northbound side.
As of Sunday, Lohman remained in serious, but stable condition at the University of Louisville Hospital. Pickler was not involved, but issued a statement to her social media sites on Sunday:
Yesterday, my drummer Gregg Lohman was in a horrific car accident and is currently in ICU. Gregg is not just my drummer, he is family. I believe in miracles and the power of prayer, so it would mean the world to me, my band, and Gregg’s family if you would please keep him in your prayers. Thank y’all so much. -Pickler
Here is a video of Gregg talking about his favorite drum equipment while playing with Kellie.
Prayers certainly go out to Gregg and everyone effected.
