Bob Burns, a founding member of rock group Lynyrd Skynyrd, has died in a car crash at the age of 64.

The drummer, who played on the band’s first two albums, was killed when his car left the road on Friday, striking a mailbox and a tree.

Georgia State Patrol spokeswoman Tracey Watson said Burns, who was not wearing a seatbelt, was killed in the wreck.

He was alone in the car, and no other cars were involved. Police are trying to establish if weather was a factor.

Burns performed alongside singer Ronnie Van Zant, bassist Larry Junstrom and guitarists Gary Rossington and Allen Collins in Lynyrd Skynyd from 1966 to 1974.
