Luis Fernando Muñoz Castro, a member of the band Banda Los Recoditos, is dead after a car accident in Mexico.

Fernando was in a truck that crashed just days ago in Sinaloa, along with a number of other people.

The accident left five people dead and six people injured, reported El Universal.

“Sadly we have to confirm the loss of our friend, Luis Fernando Muñoz,” according to the band’s official Twitter account.

The accident happened on La Costera highway.

“A star has gone up to heaven. I feel sad friend but I know that you will play the clarinet beautifully up there and you will make God happy. It has been a long night waking a friend and making the crowns that people have asked me to do,” Luis Angel Franco, Banda Los Recoditos vocalist, said on Facebook.

Fernando was 25 years old and was the clarinet player of the group.

The band’s Twitter account later added: 

“We would like to thank everyone for their condolences, thank you for your words during these difficult times. Without a doubt our bandmate Luis Fernando has left a great void in our hearts, we ask that you continue praying for his eternal peace and above all for his family that in these moments. They need your prayers so they can assimilate this situation. We send you a big hug up in heaven. God needed a great musician like you. Unfortunately you have gone too son but we know that one day we will reunite.”
