Kelly Pickler's Drummer Injured in I-65 Crash Between Glendale and Sonora

The fiery crash that killed six people this weekend also resulted in five people injured. One of those injured was the drummer in the band of Kentucky native country music star Kellie Pickler.

Injured was 36-year-old Gregg Lohman of Goodlettsville, Tenn., who remains in serious condition at University of Louisville Hospital. He suffered head and neck injuries according to Kentucky State Police Master Trooper Norm Chaffins.

On her Facebook page, Pickler wrote this: "I believe in the 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."

Both accidents continue to be under investigation as to the causes, with the one that killed six people from Wisconsin involving a tractor-trailer that at this point was known to be too close to the SUV while traveling. When it hit the SUV it burst into flames.

As for Lohman, his vehicle was hit from behind, and then his vehicle hit another vehicle in front of him, resulting in a four-car accident.
