17th Jul 17 | Entertainment News

The members of heavy rock group Adrenalin Mob have spoken out a day after bass player David Zablidowsky was killed in a tour bus accident in Florida.

Zablidowsky, aka David Z, was a passenger in the band's recreational vehicle when it was struck by a tractor-trailer on a freeway near Micanopy.

His bandmates Mike Orlando, Jordan Cannata, Russell Allen all survived the crash, while the group's tour manager, Janet Rains, remains in a critical condition, according to Blabbermouth.net.

"I cannot begin to thank you all for all the prayers & thoughts," Orlando writes on social media. "I'm trying to process & deal with this, physically & mentally.

"We've literally experienced hell on earth... I'm absolutely broken, both physical & mental. I love you Dave, I will miss you more then words can say. You were one of the sweetest souls I've ever known."

Cannata adds: "We are all devastated and will need some time to physically and mentally cope but the outpouring of love has been nothing short of inspiring.

"David Z... I love you, I miss you, and send my heartfelt condolences to your family and friends. To the rest of my band mates and crew, I love you all. Please keep everyone involved in your thoughts and prayers. Thank you everyone."

Reports suggest the group's RV was stationary at the side of the road when it was hit by another motorist. The band was en route to a gig in St. Petersburg, Florida.

Allen adds: "I'm overwhelmed with sorrow. I am so grateful for the outpouring of love we have received from around the world. Please continue to pray for David's family during this difficult time. And those in critical condition.

"I want to personally thank Marine Lance Cpl. Patrick Dumon for his bravery in assisting me pull our Driver Jason from the wreckage and for attending to his wounds. And for helping me to secure and attend to Jane once I was able to get her free from the fire. Without his selfless act of courage I would not have been able to get them clear of the RV before it was engulfed in flames. On behalf of my band and crew I thank you."
