A rollover accident that took place on I-94 in western Wisconsin Sunday claimed the life of a 22-year-old who was part of the Arizona-based band While We’re Up.

The Wisconsin State Patrol announced that the young musician was killed on impact at the scene of the accident. The accident occurred after a rear tire malfunctioned and suffered a blowout, causing the vehicle to roll over on the highway.

All three members of the band were in the car at the time of the rollover incident. The driver and the backseat passenger were transported to a nearby hospital and are still recovering from their injuries.

An investigation into the crash is underway. The remaining members of the band issued a statement on their Facebook page discussing their sorrow and sadness for the passing of their friend and fellow band member.
