“His leg was broken on impact and he became tangled in the truck’s trailer where his skull suffered a complex fracture,” the band wrote in a statement posted to Instagram Thursday. “Thankfully, he is alive. After a couple long operations he is now on the road to recovery. It's going to be a long, difficult, and winding road, but knowing how determined Joe is, and seeing how much his body has recovered already in the past 10 days, I am so optimistic that he will make it back to his cheeky old self.”
