NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- A tour bus carrying country star Jason Aldean struck a man walking along a highway in southwest Indiana early Monday and the pedestrian was pronounced dead at the scene, authorities said.

Aldean and his driver were the only ones aboard the performer's bus, which hit the man after he had walked onto U.S. Highway 41 North around 1:28 a.m., said Sheriff Michael P. Morris in Indiana's Knox County.
The deceased was identified as Albert Kennedy of Vincennes, Ind.
Morris said no charges will be filed, calling the accident "unavoidable."
"In all the years I've been touring and all the miles we've driven, nothing prepares you for something like this to happen," Aldean said in a post on his Twitter account. "I'm praying for Albert Kennedy's family and friends today and ask that you do the same."

Morris said the man had been known to travel along the roadway on foot or by bicycle at all times of the day.
Aldean's publicist said the singer had just finished his "Night Train" tour and was heading to Illinois for a short vacation before his planned appearance at the Country Music Association Awards next week in Nashville, Tenn.
