Kevin Clark, the child drummer from Jack Black’s School of Rock, is reportedly dead.
According to the Chicago Sun-Times, the musician was killed early Wednesday as he was riding his bike in Chicago’s North Side. Authorities say Clark he was struck by a Hyundai Sonata around 1:20 a.m. And when emergency personnel transported his body to Illinois Masonic Medical Center, he was pronounced dead shortly after 2 a.m.
InTouch Weekly adds that an autopsy has been completed and determined the cause of death was “blunt force injury due to motor vehicle and bicycle collision.”
Law enforcement say the motorist who struck Clark was a 20-year-old woman. Although she was not arrested in connection to the incident, she was issued a citation.
A bit about him, according to Complex:
Clark was just 12 years old when he landed the role of Spazzy McGee, a nickname he received from Black’s character, Dewey Finn. Clark’s mother, Allison Clark, said her son didn’t have any acting experience prior to the film, but had been drumming since he was 3.
