NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Kid Rock said in a statement he’s devastated about the death of his assistant who was killed in an ATV accident at the singer’s home in Nashville, Tennessee.

Metro Nashville Police Department said in a news release that 30-year-old Michael Sacha was found dead early Monday morning.

The musician posted a statement on his website saying Sacha was “one of the greatest young men I have ever had the pleasure to not only work with, but also to become friends with.”

Police said the accident happened when Sacha drove two people down the driveway to meet an Uber driver at midnight. Sacha crashed while riding the ATV back to the home. Rock, whose real name is Robert Ritchie, and a friend found Sacha on an embankment late Monday morning and called for help.
