LEBANON, Ind. (AP) — Police say a singer and pianist with a Christian musical group was killed when an RV he was driving crashed over the weekend on a highway in central Indiana.

The Boone County Sheriff's Department says 61-year-old Roy Bray of Trenton, Kentucky, was driving the RV carrying The Southman Quartet when it went off Interstate 65 about 2 a.m. Sunday and into a wooded median near Lebanon, about 20 miles northwest of Indianapolis.

The department says Bray was pronounced dead at the scene, while 72-year-old singer Jim Hefner, of Albertville, Alabama, was taken to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. Two other group members on the RV weren't hurt.

The group was heading south after a performance in the northern Indiana town of Shipshewana.

The cause of the crash wasn't immediately known.
