A tour bus carrying country star Jason Aldean struck and killed a pedestrian in Knox County, Ind. early Monday morning (Oct. 28). 

ABC News has confirmed that Albert Kennedy of Vincennes, Ind. was hit by Aldean’s tour bus at approximately 1:28AM after walking out into the northbound lane of US 41 North.

When the coroner arrived at the scene, he pronounced Kennedy “deceased from trauma to the head and chest.”

Knox County Sheriff Michel Morris confirms that Aldean was on the bus at the time of the accident. A representative for Aldean also confirmed the news.

Aldean released the following statement via Twitter on Monday afternoon.

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. 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.

So far there is no word as to what Kennedy was doing on the roadway. An investigation into the accident is ongoing.
