KNOX COUNTY, Ind. – A man was struck and killed after stepping out in front of country singer Jason Aldean's tour bus in Indiana early Monday morning.

The Knox County Sheriff's Office said the crash happened around 1:30 a.m. on US 41 North in Vincennes. The pedestrian was identified as Albert Kennedy, of Vincennes.

Jason Aldean posted his condolences on Twitter, saying "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."

Only Aldean and his bus driver were on board the bus at the time of the crash, according to reports.

An investigation was underway.

The 36-year-old is a three-time Grammy Award nominee and multiple CMA Award winner. He is best known for his singles "My Kinda Party," "Big Green Tractor," "Dirt Road Anthem," and his duet with Kelly Clarkson, "Don't You Wanna Stay."

He most recently raised more than $575,000 for Susan G. Komen foundation with his eighth annual "Concert for the Cure" this past Friday in New Orleans.

Aldean filed for divorce from his high school sweetheart in April, citing irreconcilable differences, after he admitted to acting inappropriately with former American Idol contestant Brittany Kerr. The former couple has two daughters.
