School Of Rock star Kevin Clark has died aged 32 after being fatally struck by a car, according to reports.

The actor, 32, was riding his bicycle around Chicago on Wednesday morning when he was hit, TMZ say.

The Cook County Medical Examiner told the website that he was taken to hospital after the incident and was pronounced dead at just after 2am.

Police told Chicago Sun Times that a 20-year-old woman was driving the car that hit him and she was issued citations.

In the 2003 Jack Black comedy the star played drummer Freddy Jones, who was nicknamed ‘Spazzy McGee’. He was just 12-years-old when he landed the role.

The film, directed by Richard Linklater, followed Black’s substitute teacher Dewey Finn as he tried to turn his class of uptight private school pupils into a rock group.

Clark reunited with Black in 2018, 15 years after School of Rock was released in cinemas.

The star and his Tenacious D bandmate Kyle Gass went to see Clark’s own band Dreadwolf play in Chicago. A picture of Black and Gass cosying up to Clark and his bandmate was posted to the Dreadwolf Instagram account and Facebook page, with Black, 51, wearing a Dreadwolf T-shirt.
