Clark, who played drummer Freddy ‘Spazzy McGee’ Jones in the 2003 hit film, is said to have been riding a bike in Chicago this morning (May 26) when he was hit (via TMZ).
According to the outlet, the actor was rushed to hospital but was pronounced dead at 2:04 am CT.
It is reported that a 20-year-old woman was driving the car, a Hyundai Sonata, which hit Clark. She was not arrested but received citations, police said TMZ.
Clark, born in Highland Park, Ill., Was just 12 when he got the role of Freddy in Rock school, which stars Jack Black as fake substitute teacher Dewey Finn. He has not appeared in any other film.
Paying tribute to Clark on Instagram, Black shared a photo of the pair in Rock school as well as a more recent image. “Devastating news. Kevin is gone. Far too early, ”he wrote in the caption.
” Beautiful soul. So many good memories. Sorry. Sending love to his family and the entire School of Rock community. You can see the post below.
In 2018, Clark reunited with Black after a Tenacious D show in Chicago. Clark, who played drums in the Dreadwolf band, later posted an image of their meeting online. “A bit of a must see here, but it’s not everyday that you see Jack Black wearing your [band’s] t-shirt, ”he wrote.
