Driver in crash that killed 'America's Got Talent' contestant Dr. Brandon Rogers was reportedly asleep

The car accident that killed future "America's Got Talent" contestant Dr. Brandon Rogers reportedly took place when his friend who was driving fell asleep at the wheel.

Rogers was riding in the front seat of the vehicle when the driver dozed off, causing him to go off the right side of the road and veer head-first into a tree in Maryland on Saturday, TMZ reported.

The driver informed Maryland state police that he fell asleep following a lengthy shift at work, according to the report. The driver and a friend in the back seat each survived the crash.

Authorities reportedly don't believe drugs or alcohol were a factor in the crash. Rogers died on Sunday from the injuries he sustained in the accident. 

Rogers, 29, was a burgeoning singer who was set to appear on an episode of "America's Got Talent" next month. It's currently undecided if NBC will air his auditon episode in the wake of his death.

Rogers rose to viral fame late last year after he uploaded an Instagram video of him singing the Boyz II Men classic "On Bended Knee," which racked up more than 73,000 views.

He later joined Boyz II Men on stage at a January concert in Mirage Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas to sing along to their hit "I'll Make Love to You."

"This past weekend has been nothing short of amazing!!" Rogers captioned an Instagram video of the concert cameo. "Sharing the stage with my idols...literally a dream come true!! Thank you SO much to 3 of the dopest most insanely talented singers ever @BoyzIIMen !!"
