The deceased was identified as Albert Kennedy of Vincennes, Ind. The Knox County Coroner said Kennedy had died from trauma to the head and chest.

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 confirmed by his publicist. "I'm praying for Albert Kennedy's family and friends today and ask that you do the same."
