(CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — John “Beatz” Holohan, drummer for modern rock group Bayside, was killed early Monday morning in a single-car accident in Cheyenne, Wyoming, while the band was on its way to a concert in Salt Lake City.

Holohan, 31, was killed when the band’s van rolled on Interstate 80, about 12 miles west of Cheyenne, shortly after 3:00 a.m.

Bassist Nick Ghanabarian was seriously injured. Crew members Scott D. Robinson and Daniel Marino were also hospitalized for injuries. Lead singer Anthony Ranieri and guitarist Jack O’Shea were not seriously injured and released from a Cheyenne hospital.

Holohan and Marino were ejected form the van when it rolled, according to investigators.
