LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - The drummer for country music star Kellie Pickler has been identified as one of the people hospitalized in two crashes along Interstate 65 in central Kentucky.
Pickler's manager, Larry Fitzgerald, said Gregg Lohman suffered serious injuries in the wreck Saturday.
University of Louisville Hospital spokesman David McArthur said Lohman remained there in serious condition Sunday.
State troopers have said a collision between a tractor-trailer and an SUV headed north started a fire that slowed traffic on both sides of the interstate Saturday. Troopers have said the wrecks on the southbound lane were likely caused by people slowing to look at the initial crash.
Six people from rural Wisconsin were killed when the tractor-trailer rear-ended their vehicle. Two foster children survived and were taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
