LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Saxophonist LeRoi Moore, a founding member of the Dave Matthews Band, died on Tuesday of complications from a vehicle accident in June.

A statement on the band's Web site said Moore died unexpectedly at Hollywood Presbyterian Medical Center in Los Angeles on Tuesday afternoon.

Moore had been injured in June while riding an all-terrain vehicle near his farm in Charlottesville, Virginia, the statement said.

He had recently returned to his home in Los Angeles to begin rehabilitation.

Celebrity Web site TMZ.com said Moore was 46.
