Jason Aldean’s Tour Bus Kills Pedestrian Albert Kennedy In Indiana
Jason Aldean’s tour bus hit and killed a man who walked into the middle of the road as the country singer was traveling through Indiana Monday morning.
The man, Albert Kennedy, was often seen walking around the town, Sherrif Michael Morris told TMZ. Kennedy had "walked out into the middle of the roadway," the Knox County Sheriff’s department told CNN. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
Following the incident, Aldean took to his WhoSay account to confirm the tragedy that involved his tour bus, and to offer condolences to Kennedy’s family. “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,” Aldean wrote. “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.”
On Friday, Aldean had performed his annual Concert for the Cure show in New Orleans, La., raising $575,000 for Susan G. Comen. He’ll be kicking off a nationwide tour on Jan. 10, 2014 in Austin, Tex., at the Frank Erwin Center.
