American Idol Star’s Drummer In Serious Condition After Car Accident

The drummer for American Idol’s Kellie Pickler, Gregg Lohman, is in serious but stable condition after a car crash in Kentucky Saturday morning.

According to News-2 Nashville, the accident happened on I-65 near Glendale, just 30 minutes after another crash in the northbound lanes of the same highway and the same area. Local authorities said six members of a Wisconsin family were killed and two were injured when their SUV was rear-ended by a tractor-trailer.

Gregg was one of three people injured in the four-car collision, which involved a tractor-trailer as well as three other cars.

Weather was not a factor, so authorities are looking into whether this was a case of “rubbernecking” due to the other horrific accident.

Kellie released a statement pleading for prayers via her Facebook page:

"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."

We are sending good thoughts to Gregg and his family.
