A fourth victim has died as a result of a crash with the band's bus

An 18-year-old female who had lost her unborn child in a weekend collision with MercyMe's tour bus has also died, bringing the total number of fatalities to four. LiveBlog had reported on the accident on Monday; the young woman, Kara Klinker of Fort Wayne, Indiana, died Tuesday afternoon.

MercyMe, a popular Christian rock band, released this statement on Wednesday after learning of the woman's death: "Our hearts continue to break for these families and all those who knew them. We continue to pray and ask your prayers for everyone affected by this accident, that God would bring healing, comfort, peace and understanding at a time when they are desperately needed."
