CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) -- One member of the East Coast band Bayside was killed when a van pulling a trailer jackknifed and rolled this morning on icy Interstate 80 in Wyoming.

The band's concert scheduled tonight in Salt Lake City was canceled.

Drummer John "Beatz" Holohan of Dumont, New Jersey, died at the scene. Police said he was ejected from the van when it rolled over at 3:09 a.m. 12 miles west of Cheyenne.

Bass player Nick Ghanbarian of New York was in fair condition at a Cheyenne hospital. Another passenger, Daniel Marino of New York, was in serious condition.

Band members Anthony Raneri and Jack O'Shea were among three who escaped injury. One other passenger was treated and released.
