0

Adrenaline Mob was involved in a fatal bus crash that took the life of bassist David "Dave Z" Zablidowsky and injured six more individuals.

Gainesville.com reports that the accident happened when a tractor-trailer veered off Interstate 75 near Micanopy, Florida and struck the band's RV that had pulled off the highway with a flat tire.

Zablidowsky was officially pronounced dead at 12:42 PM.

Nine people in total were in the vehicles, two of which declined medical treatment.

The band's former bassist, John Moyer of Disturbed, stated:

"This talented, humble, sweet soul left us today way too soon. If you saw him perform you were lucky. If you knew him you were blessed.

"RIP David Z.

"You were a beast on stage and it was my pleasure to have shared it with you on your last days. Going to miss you brother."

Apart from Adrenaline Mob, Zablidowsky was musically involved with Trans-Siberian Orchestra, Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, Jeff Scott Soto Band, and more.

Rest in peace, David.

    For fucks sake people, stop changing your tires on the highway shoulders.  You're asking for it.  I've seen too many people killed doing this.  If you have to leave your car, leave it.  If you can drive off the highway on the rim, just do it.

    Dumb comment brother . You make it sound so simple. You obviously don't travel via automobile often. What happens when exits are miles and miles apart? Just keep on truckin? In a tour bus!? How about they start throwing the book at these piece o shit drivers who aren't paying attention?

    Everyone should at least evacuate the vehicle and get a safe distance away until proper help arrives.  That's a common rule of thumb from the Highway Patrol for safety because these things happen all the time from all sorts of drivers (videos all over the net of many instances).  If people would just pay more attention on the roads this tragic shit wouldn't happen, but we all know that's never going to happen.  So it's up to us to cover our own asses.

    Kind of have to change a tire wherever you end up with a flat. The problem is tractor-trailer drivers that are sleep deprived due to insane shipping schedules and drive like maniacs to get to their destinations on time. 2 day amazon prime shipping has a cost.

    You're actually on the right track.  I know the Highway Patrol encourages everyone as a safety rule that all passengers should evacuate the vehicle if it is broke down on the side of the highway.  These type of accidents happen all the time and usually it is caused by people not paying attention or they are rubbernecking.  Everyone should of gotten clear of the buss and called for help/assistance.  Nevertheless it's a tragic situation/event.
