The former drummer for the Southern hard rock band Lynyrd Skynyrd, Robert Burns Jr., has died in a car crash in Georgia.
Georgia State Patrol spokeswoman Tracey Watson said Burns' vehicle went off a curve in a road near Cartersville just before midnight Saturday (April 4), striking a mailbox and a tree. Burns was killed in the wreck. He was 64.
The single-vehicle accident remains under investigation, and Watson said further details were not immediately available.
