Adrenaline Mob Tour Manager dies from injuries sustained in crash
It’s been over a month since the tragic vehicle accident that claimed the life of Adrenaline Mob bassist David Z., and unfortunately there’s another victim. Janet Rains, better known as the band’s tour manager Jane Train, has also passed away due to complications from the crash.
On July 14, 2017, the heavy metal supergroup’s RV was hit by a tractor trailer in Micanopy, Florida, while they were travelling to St. Petersburg for a concert. The RV had pulled off I-75 due to a flat tire. Bassist David Zablidowsky was killed, while Mike Orlando, Russell Allen, Jordan Cannata and Jane Train were seriously injured in the accident.
Jane passed away earlier on Wednesday (Aug. 23), and it was her mother to announce it on Facebook, writing “August 23, 2017 Janet chose to be with Jesus.”
The 48-year-old, best known as lead singer of ’80s cover band M80, was seriously injured, suffering significant burns in the July 14 crash in which a tractor-trailer struck the band’s touring vehicle which had been parked on the side of the road. It was previously reported that a total of nine people were in the vehicles.
One died on the scene, six were taken to area hospitals, and the other two declined medical treatment. The majority of those injured were taken to UF Health Shands Hospital and North Florida Regional Medical Center. Jane had remained in the University of Florida Health Shands Burn Center in Gainesville since the accident.
Until two days ago, Adrenaline Mob’s bassist David “Z” Zablidowsky was the only one killed in the crash. Now Jane joins him. Robert Dressler, 45, of Plains (who was the band’s soundman on the tour) and Jason McCole, 41, of Wilkes-Barre, (who was driving the RV), were also injured.
