The band was involved in a terrifying road accident on Thursday (19Nov15), when their bus collided with a truck on a highway just outside of El Paso, Texas.

The drivers of both vehicles were killed in the crash, and all five bandmates were injured along with members of their road crew.

Their former touring partners Bring Me The Horizon have now sent their condolences to the musicians, and vowed to donate proceeds from merchandise sales at their shows to a fund set up to help with medical bills stemming from the crash.

"Our thoughts are currently with the band, crew and families of all involved in this horrible accident," the stars declare in a statement posted on Facebook.com. "We first toured with The Ghost Inside in 2008 and have remained good friends with them since. Proceeds from our merchandise on this tour have been donated to a GoFundMe account set up to help with medical bills."

The campaign on Gofundme.com had raised more than $136,000 (£85,000) as WENN went to press.
