STUART, Fla. (AP) — The bassist for a Florida Indie rock band died in a wrong-way crash on Interstate 95.

The Florida Highway Patrol says the wrong-way driver also died in the chain-reaction crash near Stuart early Wednesday morning.

Troopers say the wrong-way vehicle was driven by 31-year-old Troy Van Snook. His vehicle slammed head-on into a sports utility vehicle carrying member of Ghost Cat, a local band that had just played a gig at The Speakeasy Lounge in Lake Worth.

FHP says 26-year-old Bryan Jackson was thrown from the vehicle.

Band members told the Palm Beach Post (http://bit.ly/1dRX15o ) the band's drummer Karsten Andersen was injured in the crash and underwent surgery Wednesday night.

No other injuries were reported. Troopers are investigating whether Snook had been drinking or using drugs prior to the crash.
