From DMB's official site:
We are deeply saddened that LeRoi Moore, saxophonist and founding member of Dave Matthews Band, died unexpectedly Tuesday afternoon, August 19, 2008, at Hollywood Presbyterian Medical Center in Los Angeles from sudden complications stemming from his June ATV accident on his farm near Charlottesville, Virginia. LeRoi had recently returned to his Los Angeles home to begin an intensive physical rehabilitation program.
All our best to LeRoi Moore's family and friends. These are sad times, but let's not forget all the great memories and music 'Roi has given us throughout the last 17+ years. You will live on forever inside us all 'Roi.
A fund has been created in honor of LeRoi Moore "in support of charities that reflect both his spirit and passion". See www.dmband.com for information on how to donate.
