According to ABC News, the tour bus belonging to country singer Jason Aldean struck and killed a pedestrian last night in Knox County Indiana.

The police report states that at approximately 1:28 a.m., the pedestrian, Albert Kennedy of Vincennes, Ind., "walked out into the middle of the roadway" and was struck by Aldean's bus on the northbound lane of US 41 North.

Knox County Sheriff Michel Morris confirmed that Aldean was on the bus at the time of the accident.

Aldean released the following statement on social media:

"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 currently being investigated.

Aldean was in New Orleans for a concert on Friday night in which he donated over $575,000 to the New Orleans Susan G. Komen fund.
