‘School of Rock’ Drummer Kevin Clark Killed

Kevin Clark, 32, who played kid drummer Freddy Jones in School of Rock, died on Wednesday after he was struck by a car.

Clark was riding a bicycle when he was hit by a Hyundai Sonata in North Western Avenue, Chicago police said. Paramedic found him and took him to Illinois Masonic Medical Center. Clark suffered “trauma throughout the body” and was rushed to the hospital in critical condition. He was pronounced dead at 2:04 a.m.

Rivkah Reyes, who played the bassist Katie in the movie, wrote on Twitter that she’d “never forget your hugs and your laugh and the sheer joy on your face when we’d run into each other in Chicago. Thank you for always showing up for me with that ‘big brother I never had’ energy.”
