Adrenaline Mob's tour manager Jane Train, real name Janet Rains, has very sadly passed away, just over a month after she suffered "catastrophic injuries" in the vehicle crash that killed the band's bassist, David 'Z' Zablidowsky.

Jane's mother, Lucille Joyner of Franklin Lakes, New Jersey, shared the news on Facebook, saying:

"August 23, 2017 Janet chose to be with Jesus."

On Monday, Ed Ciarimboli, the 48-year-old's attorney, said she was in "pretty bad shape" at the University Of Florida Health Shands Burn Center in Gainesville, five weeks after the band's RV was hit by a tractor-trailer near Micanopy, Florida as the band were on their way to a gig at State Theatre, St Petersburg as part of their tour to support their third studio album, 'We The People'.

The accident occurred when the tractor-trailer veered off Interstate 75 and crossed at least one full traffic lane before leaving the road, splitting the RV in half and causing it to become engulfed in flames.

Ciarimboli and attorney Greg Fellerman expect to file a lawsuit against the trucking company in connection with the incident. Ciarimboli said that officials are awaiting the release of the tractor-trailer driver's toxicology report.

The Citizens' Voice reported earlier this month that Twiss Transport has a "satisfactory" rating from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, despite the fact that the company received 87 violations during the past 24 months.

Of that total, 26 violations were for unsafe driving, 31 for hours-of-service compliance, 28 for vehicle maintenance and two for controlled substances and alcohol.

The company was also involved in 14 crashes, not including the Adrenaline Mob crash, including one which caused a fatality, and seven that caused injury.

Jane is best known as the lead singer of 80s cover band M80. A GoFundMe page created for her recovery expenses has raised more than $21,000. You can donate right here.
