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.
Gainsville.com is reporting the following news regarding a crash that involves the band Adrenaline Mob.
One person was killed and six others injured Friday afternoon when a tractor-trailer veered off Interstate 75 and struck a band’s RV, which had pulled off the highway with a flat tire.
Marion County firefighters were dispatched at 12:24 p.m. The accident was on the southbound side near Micanopy.
At the scene, a sound man for the band, Adrenaline Mob, said the metal group was traveling in the RV and a van that was pulling a covered trailer.
A total of nine people were in the vehicles. One died, six were taken to area hospitals, and the other two declined medical treatment. Of the six injured, three were listed in critical condition and the other three in stable condition as of Friday evening. They were taken to UF Health Shands Hospital and North Florida Regional Medical Center.
The truck driver declined comment to a reporter. The driver was traveling from Atlanta to Orlando. It’s unknown if his trailer contained any cargo. The side of the truck said Twiss Transport, Inc., Largo.
The FHP was still investigating Friday evening. So far, troopers believe that the RV and the van, which was pulling the enclosed trailer, had pulled off southbound I-75 onto the west shoulder. The van and the RV were traveling together. The RV had a flat tire, so both vehicles pulled off the highway.
The truck driver, for unknown reasons, veered off I-75 and struck the RV, which caught fire, the patrol said.
Robert Dressler was one of the people who had been riding in the RV. He is the sound man for Adrenaline Mob, which was en route from Biloxi, Mississippi, to St. Petersburg, Florida where it was scheduled to perform Friday night at the State Theater.
Dressler said he heard a “boom” when the truck hit the RV. He was in a bunk at the time.
As of 6 p.m. Friday the patrol had not identified the deceased or the injured. They said only that the deceased is a man and had been in the RV. He was pronounced dead at 12:42 p.m. The injured include band members.
