The Dropkick Murphys have cancelled their concert in Tulsa, Oklahoma, on Sunday night after their tour bus was involved in an accident that resulted in the death of a pedestrian.

A post on the band’s Facebook page alleges that en route to their Tulsa concert, a man walked in front of their bus while on the highway near Round Rock, Texas, early Sunday morning. According to the Facebook page, they canceled the concert after their driver was left “severely shaken” by the incident and the bus became too damaged to continue on the road.

This Monday morning, Round Rock Police spokesperson Angelique Myers released a statement regarding the accident: “The deceased has been identified as 23-year-old Dalton Lane Clark of Cedar Park, Texas. At this time, the accident is still being investigated and the driver of the bus was not cited for any traffic violations.”
