Mike Orlando
I can not begin to thank you all for all the prayers & thoughts. I'm trying to process & deal with this, physically & mentally... so I'm sorry for being vague. 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.


Russell Allen
Yesterday I was involved in an accident that took the life of my dear friend and band mate David Z Rock and left 3 of our crew in critical condition. I'm overwhelmed with sorrow. I am so grateful for the out pouring 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.

One person died and six were injured when a tractor-trailer veered off Interstate 75 near Micanopy and struck the group's RV that had pulled off the highway with a flat tire.

Out of the nine people who 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.

ADRENALINE MOB's soundman, Robert Dressler, who was one of the people who had been riding in the RV told Gainesville.com he heard a "boom" when the truck hit the RV. He was in a bunk at the time.

No names have yet been released of any of the deceased or the injured. The deceased is said to be a man who was in the RV. The injured include bandmembers.
