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