The attorneys for ADRENALINE MOB‘s tour manager, Jane Train (pictured), say that she suffered “catastrophic injuries” in last month’s crash that killed the band’s bassist.
The 48-year-old Train, whose real name is Janet Rains, is still in a burn unit in Gainesville, Florida, four weeks after ADRENALINE MOB‘s RV was struck by a tractor-trailer near Micanopy, Florida. The accident occurred when the tractor-trailer — dispatched by Largo, Florida company Twiss Transport Inc., veered off Interstate 75, crossed at least one full traffic lane before leaving the road, splitting the RV in half and causing it to become engulfed in flames.
According to Times Leader, attorneys Ed Ciarimboli and Greg Fellerman held a press conference on August 3 to offer an update on the conditions of those hurt and fill in some details about the ongoing investigation by Florida Highway Patrol and the litigation that could follow.
“[Janet] has catastrophic injuries,” Ciarimboli said. “She’s had a number of surgeries. We do anticipate that she will be in the burn unit for a considerable amount of time into the future.”
It was previously reported that a total of nine people were in the vehicles. One died, 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.
ADRENALINE MOB bassist David “Z” Zablidowsky was killed in the crash.
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.
“Each one of the bandmembers was injured significantly in this crash, and they all continue to treat and recover from the injuries they sustained,” Ciarimboli said. “A number of individuals have brain injuries. There’s broken bones. There’s been a number of surgeries. No one — and obviously the unfortunate death of David — escaped this horrific crash…
