Good grief, I found out about this from one of the opening bands for the show they were about to do tonight. My condolences to those in the band and Z's family.

this happened about 40 miles north of my house....as a lifelong new yorker, these people drive like animals down here.....the speed limit is 70 which means everyone is doing 85, trailers included.....many folks are doing 100, very, very dangerous.....i encourage my wife to stay off the highways if possible, it's that bad
not sure how this happened, but people are constantly cutting other people off at very high speeds......there are nasty accidents every single day on these roads
From the source article, now updated:
One passenger in the RV who was deceased, whose name has not been released pending family notification; [* We now know that it's David Z thanks to Portnoy and Moyer]
• A second passenger in the RV, Russell Allen, 38, of New Jersey, who was seriously injured;
• A third passenger, Janet Revis, 48, of Pitts Pond, Pa., who was critically injured;
• A fourth passenger, Dale Campiglia, 51 of Levittown, N.Y., who was seriously injured;
• A fifth passenger, Robert Dressler, 45 of Plaines, Pa., who was seriously injured;
• The driver of driver of a 2003 GMC Sierra, Jordan Cannata, 27 of West Babylon, N.Y., who was seriously injured; and
• The lone passenger in the GMC, 46-year-old Mike Orlando of Staten Island, N.Y., who seriously injured.
So all members were seriously injured in the crash. Hopefully there's no more casualties.
Just awful - R.I.P.
