According to the Gainesville Sun, Andrenaline Mob was headed for a gig in St. Petersburg, FL today when a tractor-trailer veered off Interstate 75 and struck the band’s RV, which had pulled off the highway with a flat tire. Nine people were involved in the accident – one person is confirmed dead, and six others are in the hospital. Of the six injured, three were listed in critical condition and the other three in stable condition as of Friday evening.
According to attending patrol officers, the deceased individual has not yet been identified, but the person was a male in the band’s RV, which caught on fire. Also confirmed is that band members are among the injured.
Adrenaline Mob’s band members are singer Russell Allen (also of Symphony X), guitarist Mike Orlando, drummer Jordan Cannata and bassist David Zablidowsky.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the band and their families and fans. We will update this story when we have more details.
