Country singer Jason Aldean confirmed on Monday that a man was killed last night after being struck by his tour bus in Knox County, Indiana.
"With a heavy heart, I'm sad to say that a man passed away last night after stepping out in front of my bus in Indiana," the 36-year-old Grammy nominee said in a statement on Twitter.
"In all the years I've been touring and all the miles we've driven, nothing prepares you for something like this to happen. I'm praying for Albert Kennedy's family and friends today and ask that you do the same," he added.
A police report obtained by ABC Newssaid that Kennedy -- who lived in Vincennes, IN --was struck by Aldean's bus after he "walked out into the middle of the roadway" on the northbound lane of US 41 North at around 1:30 a.m. Monday morning. The report noted that the coroner pronounced the man dead on the scene due to "trauma to the head and chest." /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;}
