I can’t imagine how Jason Aldean is feeling today, having been on his tour bus when it apparently struck and killed a man who walked in front of it.

The man, identified as Albert Kennedy, was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident.

According to ABC News, Kennedy walked into the middle of US 41 North in Indiana at 1:28 a.m. Monday, when the bus hit him. It was confirmed that Jason was on the bus at the time, and he has since released a statement on Twitter

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.


The accident is still under investigation.  Prayers to the man's family and all involved.
