Bayside drummer JOHN 'BEATZ' HOLOHAN was killed yesterday (31OCT05) when the New York band's van crashed in Wyoming, leaving his bandmates injured.

The rockers were travelling on the highway through Cheyenne when their tour bus flipped over after hitting an ice patch in the early hours of Monday morning. Their scheduled concert in Salt Lake City, Utah later that day was cancelled.

Holohan, 31, leaves behind his wife AMY.

Bassist NICK GHANBARAIN is seriously injured in hospital, after suffering a broken back, along with drum technician Dan Marino, 26, who also has a broken back and serious facial injuries.

The group's singer Anthony Raneri and JACK O'SHEA have been released from hospital after treatment for minor injuries.

Cheyenne police say Holohan and Marino were ejected from the van as it crashed.

A memorial fund for Holohan's family has been set up online through paypal on their website
