February 05, 2001|From Times Wire Reports

A bus chartered by the Grammy-winning Tejano band Los Palominos ran a stop sign in Port Lavaca, throwing out the band's drummer, who was killed when the bus ran over him, police said.

The driver apparently was distracted by a conversation with the drummer, Jesse Arreola, 31, said Veronica Diaz of the Calhoun County Sheriff's Department.

Arreola's brothers and fellow band members--James, Johnny and George Arreola; the driver; and a passenger suffered minor injuries.

Jesse Arreola had recently overcome leukemia, a spokesman said.
