"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".
PREVIOUS: Eyewitness News has confirmed a bus carrying Country Music star Jason Aldean was involved in a fatal accident overnight in Knox County.
According to the Knox County Sheriff's Department, the accident happened around 1:30 Monday morning on Old U.S. 41, just north of Vincennes. Deputies say Albert Kennedy was killed when he walked in front of a vehicle, which our sources in Nashville confirmed was Aldean's bus.
It's not clear where the bus was heading, but our sources say Aldean was on board at the time of the accident. Neither he or the driver was injured. We've been told the singer will likely release a statement on the incident later on Monday.
The accident remains under investigation and we will let you know when additional information is available.
