Eric Laufer (the lead vocalist of Austin band The Two Timin' /Three/ Four) was killed on the way home by a "hit-and-run" driver.
The motorcycle was traveling northbound at the time of the crash. It happened around 4 a.m. Thursday, just east of Burnet Road on U.S. 183. Police say they found the man's body on the elevated roadway and the motorcycle on the ground below.
APD found a blue GMC Truck that they believe was involved in the accident, but they haven't found the driver.
Eric Laufer was a great singer, great talent, and will be missed by many.
A benefit show in Austin will be held soon. Right now it's only in the planning stages, but the proceeds will go to Eric's family to offset the funeral costs.
