Country singer Jason Aldean’s tour bus ran over and killed a pedestrian early Monday morning in Indiana.

Aldean, who was on the bus when the collision occurred, released a statement via Twitter late this morning:

“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,” the country singer 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.”

According to TMZ, cops on the scene said the accident occurred when Aldean’s bus crashed into Kennedy after he walked into the middle of the road. Law enforcement also told TMZ that the bus driver was not at fault and did everything in his power to minimize the impact.
